Celebrating Strong Woman - International Woman's Day 2023
March 06, 2023
March 8th is International Women's Day, and Alpine Building Maintenance is proud to celebrate the strong women on our team who make a difference every day. We are committed to creating diverse workplaces across Canada and imagine a gender equal world free of bias, stereotypes and discrimination. With 43% of our management team self-identifying as women, we're leading the way in our traditionally male-dominated industry. So on this International Women's Day, we're shining a spotlight on one of our amazing women making a difference at Alpine.

Q: In two or three sentences, tell us about your career path that led you to your current role.
A: As an administration specialist with over 20+ years of experience, I continuously assess my own performance to achieve personal goals. I am committed and open minded and take great passion in what I do. My knowledge and skills have been obtained through learning forums but mainly because of practical exposure. I have career mentors that have provided guidance and motivation to support building and growing my professional network to help me advance in my career.
Q: What advice do you have for women just starting out in their careers, or who are looking to make a career change?
A: Always project confidence and be persistent. Take on new challenges but make a plan. Self promote, when possible, whether its at your current career or professional platforms. We are not usually in the habit of promoting ourselves but should take more initiative to do so.
Q: How can companies best support women in their career ambitions?
A: I'd recommend they consider supporting women in these four key areas:
- Focus on Promotion at the Early Management Level
- Promote an environment of safe and open communication
- Provide accessible resources for women
- Equal representation of women in business and management roles
