“We wanted to have a community where women could support and depend on one another and didn’t be bashed or belittled for doing so. I had so much knowledge and advice, it was nice to share it with women that wanted to be in the same field, and I wanted to help them to prevent the same mistakes that I had made and what to avoid.“
As Black women in a male-dominated industry, they aren’t offered a seat at many tables, hence the reason these ladies built their own table. LLL has worked hard to locate opportunities for women-owned transportation and logistics companies.
