EQUALITY AND EMPOWERMENT FOR WOMEN.
In September 2018, Women of Commercial Landscaping (WCL) was established as a unique segment sponsored by Clintar Commercial Outdoor Services.
Led by Clintar’s Chief Commercial Officer Kimberly Khoury, WCL was created with the intention of supporting and encouraging women to pursue their careers within the Commercial Landscaping and Snow Removal industries.
As an organization, WCL provides women with:
- • Online resources and educational opportunities
- • Professional Networking Events
- • A supportive community of like-minded women
Recently recognized as a Woman of Influence, Kimberly has leveraged her extensive business background into an initiative that fosters equality and empowerment for women that work within these male-dominated industries. Through a combination of networking and educational resources, WCL provides an exceptional platform for women to succeed within their Commercial Landscaping and Snow Removal careers.
