Education, Enrichment, Empowerment
We invite you to join us!Be a part of the movement for empowering women in male-dominated industries.
Women of Commercial Landscaping (WCL) was built with the intention of supporting and encouraging women to start and run their own businesses in the commercial landscaping and snow removal world.
WCL aims to create a culture of equality by breaking down barriers for women in male-dominated industries.
We’re here to educate, help women gain the experiences they need, and feel confident in their decisions to operate and grow within their chosen industries.
WCL is its own unique segment sponsored by Clintar Commercial Outdoor Services that aims to create a culture of equality.
WCL was created with the initiative of supporting women in male-dominated industries. It was created for every industrial working female in the world; for females who want to be successful in starting and excelling within their own businesses.
Our founder, Kimberly Khoury, has spent 20+ years as a high-ranking executive. Over the years, she’s witnessed the development of women taking on various roles. She knew it was time to start supporting and helping other women within her own company and industry achieve the same level of success.
Why was the decision to create WCL made? It all started when Kimberly published an article for Women of Influence. She may have gotten to share her own success story, but she knew this wasn’t enough. She wanted to support other women in male-dominated industries.
She wanted to empower women to eventually be able to share their own stories about being a part of an award-winning company, or being their very own bosses. This was the focus and motivation for getting WCL off the ground.
WCL’s core value is supporting women in growing, learning, and exceling within male-dominated industries.
Our primary focus is on the commercial landscaping and outdoor services industries, but we are here to guide women from various industries in owning a business and succeeding in positions where they feel uncertain.
Our overall goal is to get women together to network, discuss, and learn from each other and from our global ambassadors. We are here to encourage and facilitate open conversations about how women can excel in their chosen fields.
Below you will find a list of our current and future planned events.
We encourage you to participate in our events in order to network and learn from our successful Female keynote speakers and global ambassadors.
