Penske - Platinum Sponsor
Founded in Reading, PA over 50 years ago, Penske is a global company with local roots. As one of Berks County’s largest employers, we remain strongly committed to reflecting the values and diversity of our surrounding community.
Diversity & Inclusion is a core value at Penske. It is why we have a focus on building sustainable programs that support and encourage women at every level of our organization. For the past several years, our Women in the Field and Women in Logistics programs have brought women together to network, share experiences, and participate in professional development activities. Earlier this year, we launched our first, enterprise-wide Women’s Business Resource Group, a voluntary, associate-led group whose goal is to support women and provide opportunities to build connections internally while also supporting the communities in which we do business. These programs, in addition to our comprehensive benefits and renowned company culture, have earned Penske successive recognition as a Top Company for Women to Work for in Transportation by the Women in Trucking Association.
“It is an exciting time to be at Penske. We are focused on creating spaces for women to engage in impactful opportunities that allow for enriching shared experiences and development,” said Nikita Rhodes, vice president for diversity and inclusion. “We continue to see advances within our women leadership ranks and remain focused on sustainable approaches to the development and career advancement of women in our organization.”
Additionally, as a key sponsor of organizations like Women2Women, the Women in Trucking Association, TechForce Foundation, Truckers Against Trafficking and other nonprofit groups, Penske is a proud supporter of the advancement and well-being of women both inside and outside the transportation industry.

“Partnering with Women2Women has been valuable not only for the students benefiting from a 20% tuition discount on their classes here at Alvernia University, but also for the school, and for me! Alvernia University has been able to take advantage of innovative and important programming for women leaders in our community, and we appreciate the excellent networking opportunities that come along with attending the events to forward our mission to recruit, enroll, and graduate lifelong learners! I enjoy the professional way Women2Women facilitates events and activities and have personally benefited from the diverse programming. As a representative of AU, I’m proud to be part of the effort to create more women leaders in Reading and Berks County!”
