In our continued efforts to create a gender-equitable workplace through learning, resources, and opportunities, our North America Women's Employee Resource Group WISE hosted its Annual Networking Event this October. Nearly 140 women and allies, including members of senior leaderships across tms, our parent company HAVI, and its business units, gathered in Chicago to create meaningful connections.
Melanie Ley, Manager, Administrative Services at HAVI, and Rachael Zigrossi, Account Manager, Packaging Services at tms introduced the group to Ronald McDonald House Charities (RMHC) and shared the important and historical connection between the organization and the HAVI Group. To support RMHC of Chicagoland & Northwest Indiana, participants in the first breakout session assembled approximately 1,650 snack pack, which will serve as grab-and-go options for RMHC families. Their assembly provided an engaging way for participants to network while doing good for the Chicago community, completing 135 volunteer hours toward HAVI's larger Better Future Blue Print goals.
