ALCC: BrightView Program GROWs Successful Women in the Industry

BrightView GROW women
BrightView's Kate Douglas Kestyn is encouraged with the recruitment of women currently being down by local branches.

BrightView’s Growth in Relationships and Opportunities for Women (GROW) was created with a mission of attracting, retaining, and promoting women within the company. As one of its first tasks, GROW surveyed the approximately 1,300 women at BrightView and learned that they overwhelmingly liked working for the company, feel their opinions matter and are heard and respected by supervisors and male peers, and they love what they do and feel they work with great people in a great company.

“Women in business typically wear a lot of hats and are crucial to our success – so how do we ensure there is a viable path for every woman in our organization?” said BrightView’s Kate Douglas Kestyn.

Kestyn, who is one of the founders of GROW, said she is encouraged seeing how local branches are trying to recruit more women.  She also is gratified to see many of these women being promoted through the ranks.
