Women around the world are known as the caretakers of our natural resources and the environment. Today, women are encouraged and motivated to take it all on, both at home and in the workplace.
Just as we see injustices happening to the Ocean, we see inequities for women in the workplace. AWE, Advancing Women Executives, a mission-driven training and development company that creates equity and economic growth in the workplace, has taken their drive to the beach in hopes of a cleaner Ocean.
This July, AWE employees met at Venice Fishing Pier to clean one of California’s most frequented beaches. Through Ocean Blue’s Create a Cleanup program this admirable team led their very own beach cleanup effort.
On what may seem on the surface to be a fairly clean beach, the women were able to find an enormous amount of tiny pieces of debris hidden in the sand.
AWE also supports clean beaches as an Ocean Blue Corporate Annual Member. This company is leading the way as an example for businesses to give back and save the ocean.
AWE is changing the culture of work, making it more profitable, and are doing their part to take care of our one world Ocean. Through interactive training, focused coaching, well-curated events, and a robust network, AWE accelerates the careers of underrepresented professionals.
In 2018 alone, 27% of AWE clients were promoted. AWE partnered with over 1000 women from Fortune 500 companies and have trained an additional 20,000 employees on topics like professional branding, communication skills, and executive presence
