For the second year in a row, the Women in Trucking (WIT) Association named Marathon Petroleum Corporation (MPC) to its list of 2023 Top Companies for Women to Work for in Transportation.

“It was a proud day to be a Marathon employee,” said Shyanne Mickley, Human Resources Business Partner at Marathon Petroleum. “As employees, we get to experience what a great company Marathon is to work for, but for an external group to see that and recognize us as a great place for women specifically to work was really special."

MPC was recognized as an exceptional company for women to work in transportation at the WIT Accelerate! Conference & Expo in Dallas in November. WIT selects companies with a corporate culture that fosters gender diversity, competitive compensation and benefits, flexible hours, professional development opportunities and career advancement opportunities. 

“This is a celebration of the progress made bringing gender diversity to the trucking industry,” said Dayna Reid, Transport Operations Senior Manager at Marathon Petroleum. “We are working to show women that the trucking industry can offer great career opportunities, and that MPC is a great company to work for.”

The nonprofit organization’s broader mission is to encourage the employment of women in the trucking industry, promote accomplishments and minimize obstacles faced by women working in the industry.

“Our partnership with Women in Trucking has helped us advance our current workplace culture,” said Hubie Bartlett, Operations Support Senior Manager with Marathon Petroleum’s Transport and Rail (T&R) organization.  "As an example, we are working to use more gender-neutral pronouns when referring to drivers and mechanics to be more inclusive of all employees.”
