Stericycle is honored to be recognized as a “Top Company for Women to Work For in Transportation” by the Women In Trucking (WIT) Association for the third year in a row. This annual award recognizes companies that are exceptional workplaces for women in all roles of the trucking industry. Stericycle was also listed among the top 30 companies with the highest number of industry votes, leading to the additional recognition of “The Elite 30.”
Stericycle champions a culture where women can grow, lead, and support others by dedicating resources to assist and retain women through employee engagement and outreach, including the company’s employee resource group, Women's Resource for Impact, Success, and Empowerment (WRISE). WRISE provides an environment where Stericycle women and allies are heard and encouraged and have development opportunities in a global community that supports curiosity, diversity, and inclusion. Additionally, Stericycle hosts an annual International Women’s Summit, uniting women in motivational career and personal development discussions.
Stericycle also remains committed to increasing representation within the organization. Globally in 2022, the company increased its percentage of women in senior and middle management roles to 30% (29%, 2021) and 33% (30%, 2021), respectively. Furthermore, the percentage of all U.S.-based new hires from racially or ethnically diverse groups increased from 2021 to 2022. Thirty percent of Stericycle’s corporate board is currently comprised of female directors, exceeding the national average for female-held board seats.
It’s an honor to be recognized once again as a top company for women to work for in transportation,” said Cindy J. Miller, President and Chief Executive Officer at Stericycle. “I’m proud of Stericycle’s commitment to elevate trucking and logistics as great industries where women can build and grow their careers while also fostering a culture where all team members feel like they belong.”
