Introducing Mowery & Schoenfeld’s Women’s Initiative – GLOW
GGI member firm Mowery & Schoenfeld is proud to announce the offcial launch of their women’s initiative, Growth & Learning Opportunities for Women, or GLOW. GLOW’s mission is to elevate, educate and support women, with the vision to create a community that fosters personal connections and professional growth.
“We continue to ask for feedback, review and evolve our programmes to better meet the needs of our team. We are dedicated to this new initiative, believe in its mission and thank all who support the diverse women and men who make up our incredible team,” shared Managing Partner, Jeff Mowery.
Building a programme from the ground up
Mowery & Schoenfeld started by creating an inclusive group of men and women at all levels of the organisation. Feedback and insights from our team members are gathered through both formal and informal methods. Internal data was layered with industry information, advisor input and best practices to create a framework for the programme. Designed by and for employees, this programme brings women and men together to:
- Ensure an environment of honesty, that lacks judgment or division.
- Collaborate and communicate to help build each other up and solve problems.
- Build programmes based on personal, professional and community growth.
- Assist each member to create a plan for clear action to achieve their goals.
- Focus on accomplishments and celebrate one another.
Mowery & Schoenfeld sought to ensure accountability through Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) for the organisation in five specific areas: pay, recruitment, retention, advancement and representation. Expectations for participants also include actionable takeaways for each event, incorporation into goal setting and a continuous feedback structure.
