MRO distribution leader Grainger will team up with The Mom Project to “welcome more women into the workforce by presenting Grainger employment opportunities on their digital talent marketplace,” the company announced.
“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,” said Kathleen Carroll, Grainger’s chief human resources officer. “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.”
The Mom Project is a digital talent marketplace/community tailored to help women remain active in the workforce by connecting individuals with employers committed to hiring “skilled, diverse talent for a wide variety of employment opportunities,” Grainger said.
Since 2016, The Mom Project has grown to more than 750,000 women, moms and parents.
