BrightView Celebrating Two Years of GROW

Group Encourages Growth and Professional Development

BrightView Celebrating Two Years of GROW

GROW's mission is to attract, promote, and retain women within BrightView.


BrightView, the nation's leading commercial landscaping service, is celebrating the second anniversary of its Employee Resource Group, GROW or Growth in Relationships + Opportunities for Women.

According to BrightView, GROW, which is led by a group of women volunteers, offers networking, professional development, and leadership opportunities. More than 300 women have participated in professional development with hundreds more benefiting from online programs. "Women are clearly an under-represented, yet capable group within the landscape industry and even here at BrightView," said Andrew Masterman, BrightView president, chief executive officer, and executive sponsor of GROW. "I've challenged our team to double the number of women in BrightView over the next three to four years, which will have a positive long-term impact on the company."

GROW has five initiatives:
• Professional Development: Have in-person events across the country and webinars with external coaches and internal speakers who inspire, teach, and develop women.

• Networking: Create channels for organic, lasting relationship development including an online community.

• Task Forces: Create cross-functional committees of women working together to solve business challenges and enhance existing programs.

• Community Service: Build a partnership with Dress for Success, a global nonprofit organization that provides professional attire for low-income women and to support women re-entering the workforce following challenging Iife circumstances.

• Mentorship: Currently in development, the program will offer more opportunities to develop the talents of BrightView's female team members.

"Nurturing the talented women of BrightView through GROW is something I take tremendous pride in," said Amanda Orders, BrightView's senior vice president for human resources and GROW co-leader. "GROW brings women together across BrightView to support each other, develop future leaders, and create lasting, professional relationships. It started as a small idea and has grown into something rewarding for all involved."A
