KWIC's mission is to promote the career development, recruitment, and retention of women by encouraging professional growth, fostering a supportive environment, sponsoring educational programs, and increasing the number of women in leadership positions at Keller.
Promote professional development internally and industry‐wide
KWIC identifies, promotes, and makes professional development opportunities available to women employees at Keller. KWIC encourages and supports women to participate and present at industry‐specific networking events, technical lectures, and conferences.
Create an internal women’s network and enhance corporate culture
KWIC sponsors networking events that allow women to share experiences and create opportunities to support each other’s goals and identify ways to overcome common challenges. KWIC has begun building a mentoring program to provide women employees a trusted advisor they can express their career‐related concerns and aspirations.
Increase recruitment and retention of women employees
KWIC works closely with Keller’s HR Department to administer group surveys, conduct interviews, and identify reoccurring concerns raised by women who are current, past, or potential employees. KWIC uses the results to identify trends to share with senior leadership along with recommendations.
Engage local community through outreach efforts
KWIC strives to establish a strong connection with the community through local outreach. Activities include fundraisers, food drives, and public speaking events at educational facilities.
