GROW: Advocating for Women
Growth in Relationships + Opportunities for Women
Women may be in the minority in the landscape industry, but their contributions certainly are not overshadowed. The GROW Employee Resource Group celebrates and supports our female colleagues by advocating for the hiring, promotion, and retention of women across BrightView.
Since 2017, GROW has brought together women and those who support them throughout the BrightView organization and beyond. BrightView’s national GROW leadership team works closely with the local chapters to promote programs, such as speaker series, and assists in the creation of local events to address the tailored needs of each community. BrightView is dedicated to providing GROW members with the resources they need to succeed at each stage of their career path, and regularly solicits feedback to create a robust selection of topics for newsletters, presentations and trainings. See how GROW’s advocacy is making a difference:
GROW provides opportunities for the women of BrightView to connect with others, including fellow group members, company leadership, and thought leaders from around the country. Networking, professional development opportunities, regional events, and webinars provide group members with support for their goals, both personal and professional.
Making Mentorship More Accessible
Mentorship is a powerful vehicle for enabling success. Whether formal or informal, BrightView’s GROW members find support through engaging with leaders and mentors within the organization to help them navigate the company and solve challenges.
Spreading Our Reach to the Community
GROW seeks to empower all women, not just those within our company. That’s why GROW members across the country are spreading the love through partnerships with community organizations that help us broaden our impact.
Women Come Together to GROW
Every quarter, BrightView brings together women in a geographic area across the country to develop their skills, build relationships, and learn from one another. Approximately 60 women attend each regional GROW conference.
