Grainger (NYSE: GWW), a distributor of maintenance, repair and operating (MRO) products, announced it will team up with The Mom Project to recruit more women into the workforce.
The Mom Project is a digital talent marketplace designed to help women remain active in the workforce by connecting individuals to employers. Since its founding in 2016, The Mom Project has grown its talent community to over 750,000 women, moms and parents. The Mom Project will present Grainger employment opportunities on their digital marketplace as part of the partnership.
“Throughout the stay-at-home environment that we experienced during the pandemic, many parents were forced to make the decision to leave the workforce to care for their families. As a mom who was able to successfully re-enter the workforce after taking a sabbatical to care for my young children, I’m proud to announce this new alliance at Grainger, so future generations of women have the same opportunity,” Grainger Chief Human Resources Officer Kathleen Carroll said.
