Blue Signal kicked off its women’s empowerment initiative by holding the first annual meeting of “Blue Signal Search Women of the Workplace” (BSS WOW) at its Phoenix Corporate office. The team’s working purpose is, “To promote education, connection, and empowerment for women (and those who support strong women) and their contributions to the broader goals of Blue Signal… and beyond!”
The group plans to create an assembly that unites the workplace to further the goals of each other as individuals, and propel Blue Signal to be the best recruiting firm in the world. We believe that connected, empowered women, and those who support them, are unstoppable. Other goals of the group are to serve as a platform to give colleagues the tools and resources needed to support their growth and to build long-term relationships with clear goals for professional development.
BSS WOW meets once per month over lunch and addresses issues relevant to working women today exploring topics such as professional growth, teamwork and cohesiveness, and work-life balance. We have explored industry-related articles, discussed other women-driven initiatives in companies we are inspired by, and have reviewed podcasts for new ideas. In the meetings, members are encouraged to discuss pain points they are currently facing, ways they are developing themselves in their role, and ultimately how to make the workplace better for all. This not only helps participants tackle issues at hand, but also gives them a space to collectively brainstorm and use as an outlet and think tank for areas to improve the company as well as their individual roles. So far, the feedback has been incredible and the meetings have delivered so much support and innovation generation.
Women are historically underrepresented in the tech space. They make up over half of the working population, however only 26 percent of jobs in technology are held by women. Blue Signal is no stranger to breaking records and surpassing what is considered the norm. In contrast to industry standards, Blue Signal’s team is comprised of over 44 percent women (and growing!) and our female-led marketing team shatters not only the glass ceiling but places us ahead of all competitors. We’re passionate about not only our clients and candidates, but our dynamic team. We continue to empower and support one another as well as market Blue Signal to its best potential.
