Women in Cleaning is a new global platform launched by Rotterdam-based Consensus Group for women in the hygiene and health industry, to share their visions and authentic ways of career building.
“In a male dominated industry, we believe that the women who are making a daily difference in our world of hygiene and health deserve a platform. A platform that doesn’t set them apart, but embraces their authentic way of career building.” says Martine Mallee, Marketing Director at Consensus Group and the brain behind the initiative. “Over the years we’ve worked alongside many inspiring women in different layers of the cleaning industry. What I’ve seen up close is that they each have incredibly empowering stories and visions that are worth sharing. That’s why we decided to build the platform ‘Women In Cleaning’ to highlight their stories, visions and successes.”
She continued: “There is nothing wrong with celebrating male successes or visions. But women in all industries sometimes deal with social issues and boundaries that can be the foundation for very insightful and important conversations. The cleaning industry has a positive reputation for embracing women and their authentic leadership qualities. Women in Cleaning aims to celebrate the Queens in all layers and departments of our wonderful industry. We welcome women to share their visions, journeys to expertise and success in business. And we welcome everyone to join the conversation. Our goal is to educate, inspire and bring people together.”
Women in Cleaning has currently published two e-books and launched a podcast series, in which women active in the cleaning industry share their successes within the sector and provide valuable advice on how to improve yourself and your business.
