International Women’s Day: ABM launches Women’s Impact Group

To coincide with International Women’s Day (8 March), integrated facility and aviation services provider, ABM has launched its first Women’s Impact Group in the UK and Ireland.

The mission and vision of the group is to amplify ABM’s mission of “creating a sense of community and work culture where all people are valued, empowered, and given opportunities to contribute to drive business objectives and goals”.

The UK and Ireland group, will be focussed on promoting a culture that values the contribution and leadership of women at ABM while advancing the understanding of what an equitable and inclusive work environment for women should look like.

The group will partner with the executive steering committee to identify clear pathways for women team members at ABM to enter leadership roles and create avenues that support mentoring, recruiting, and development of women within the business.

The first order of business is to collect insight from around the business, all of which will inform the strategy for the group’s inaugural year. People of all genders across ABM’s industry groups are welcome to join.

Susan Mason, UK & Ireland IT Director and Women’s Impact Group member commented: “The enthusiasm which this group has been met with has been fantastic. This is a historically male-dominated industry and so it is refreshing to see the encouragement and support that has been given to a group set on making incremental change. 

“Launching it on International Women’s Day is a meaningful way to participate. It’s not about a party to thank women just for one day – this is a long-term commitment from people of all genders to collaborate on a better future for women. What a way to celebrate!” 

Observed since the early 1900s, International Women’s Day is a global awareness day celebrated annually on 8 March as a focal point in the women’s rights movement, bringing attention to issues such as gender equality, reproductive rights, and violence and abuse against women. The campaign theme for 2024 is #InspireInclusion.
