SiteOne® Makes Women in the Green Industry A Virtual Event

2019 Women in the Green Industry

SiteOne Landscape Supply is growing the industry by hosting the 24th annual Women in the Green Industry (WIGI) online event Friday, October 2. Registration for the one-day, women-focused professional development event will open on September 1.

“Although we have canceled our in-person conference due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we are excited for the opportunity to come together virtually to provide the education and networking tools needed to help our customers grow and be successful in the green industry,” said Amber Baker, Division Marketing Manager-West for SiteOne Landscape Supply. “This year’s focus is “change” because the pandemic has forced us to adjust in both our professional and personal lives. The camaraderie and fellowship that occurs at meetings such as WIGI allow for the sharing of work/life balance tips, and that practice is more important than ever to navigate this time.”

The one-day agenda topics include:

  • Understanding the causes, and powerful solutions, for resistance to change
  • Rules for increasing motivation, engagement and growth through change
  • Requirements and practical considerations for seeking and using H-2B visa labor
  • Promotion/advancement in the green industry
  • Inclusion in the workplace
  • Work/life balance tools

WIGI is open to both SiteOne customers and friends. The registration fee is $99 for the virtual event; SiteOne customers can apply Partners Points to cover the registration fee. Register for Women in the Green Industry at www.SiteOne.com/WIGI.

The 2020 WIGI event is made possible with support from event sponsors: Hunter, Belgard, NDS, IPS Corporation, and the National Association of Landscape Professionals (NALP).
