Also this month, the women of ISSA, in partnership with the ISSA Hygieia Network, are showcasing how they are incorporating the theme of this year’s International Women’s Day—#EmbraceEquity—in the cleaning industry. Each day in March, an ISSA female employee or ISSA Board or Council member is giving her unique perspective on the impact of equity in the workplace and the cleaning industry.

“We are honored to be part of the International Women’s Day promotion of #EmbraceEquity,” said ISSA Director of Communications Jill Nuppenau. “As the worldwide cleaning industry association, it is important that we lead the way for the industry to provide fair practices of diversity, equity, and inclusion of everyone. We are excited to share all March long the important and insightful comments from the Women of ISSA on how they embrace equity.”
