One of Convergint’s Values & Beliefs is: “I am accountable for my continuous development”, and this applies to not only individual colleagues, but to Convergint as an organisation as well. Convergint Women Connect has been created with the mission of connecting the women of Convergint Nation to inspire them, support them, and develop their leadership mentality. This group offers the chance for Convergint to become a stronger company through the benefits gained by developing and leveraging the power of Convergint’s female colleagues.
The Convergint Women Connect Mission is “to connect the women of Convergint Nation in order to inspire, celebrate, and develop a leadership mentality”. The Vision states ” Create a strong network of Convergint Nation women to help one another reach their goals”; and finally the goal ” Supporting the women of Convergint Nation through mentoring, onboarding, training, sharing knowledge, networking, and promoting balanced lives”
“Convergint Women Connect encourages collaboration amongst the women within the Convergint Nation. We want to help the women in our organisation develop and grow professionally. This group is meant to bring a balance of women and men to the organisation.” commented Vicky Lowe, Regional Director Global Accounts, Member of the Convergint Women Connect Steering Committee.
The newly formed Convergint Women Connect group recently met for their first annual meeting. Held in Chicago, Illinois, Convergint colleagues travelled from around the globe to connect and celebrate the women of Convergint. This first annual meeting was an opportunity to network, partake in colleague development, and discuss the importance of women in security and the role women play in the overall success of Convergint.
