International Women’s Day Recognized with a Dress for Success® Partnership
BrightView’s GROW teams up with Dress for Success
BrightView Holdings, Inc. (NYSE: BV) (“BrightView”), the nation’s leading commercial landscaping services company, and Dress for Success, an
international nonprofit organization that empowers women to achieve economic independence, have teamed up in celebration of this year’s International Women’s Day and the “Your Hour, Her Power ®” campaign.
Dress for Success and the BrightView Employee Resource Group: GROW (Growth in Relationships + Opportunities for Women), have joined forces for the organization’s annual Women’s History Monthan and International Women’s Day campaign Your Hour, Her Power®, which calls on individuals to give the equivalent of one hour of their pay to help empower women that turn to the organization for help.
In recognition, BrightView donated $10,000 to Dress for Success to help ensure the organization can continue to offer their wide range of virtual employment programs and services to women that have been impacted and displaced by the current global crisis.
”Women may be in the minority in the landscape industry, but their contributions are not overshadowed, certainly not at BrightView,” said Andrew Masterman, BrightView President, Chief Executive Officer, and executive sponsor of GROW. “Our partnership with Dress for Success not only helps empower women, but also strengthens our continuing commitment to valuable community organizations like Dress for Success throughout the nation.”
Since starting operations in 1997, Dress for Success has expanded to almost 150 cities in 25 countries and has helped more than 1.2 million women work towards financial independence.
“We are proud to have Brightview as a pledge partner for our 2021 Your Hour, Her Power campaign,” said Joi Gordon, CEO of Dress for Success Worldwide. “As the only global employment resource for women, we have seen first-hand how the past year has negatively impacted women’s economic wellbeing and progression. With Brightview’s support, we will be able to continue to help our clients navigate the uncertainties of this crisis.”
GROW’s mission is to attract, promote, and retain women within BrightView. Led by a group of women committed to the mission – and who volunteer their time to ensure its success – GROW offers networking, professional development, and leadership opportunities for the women of BrightView.
BrightView is focused on generating value for the communities in which we operate, as well as for our customers, business partners, suppliers, team members and stockholders. BrightView’s commitment to the core principles of ESG – Environmental, Social, and Corporate Governance – is a source of pride for every member of our team.
