PHILADELPHIA, PA (CelebrityAccess) — Venue management specialist Spectra announced it has launched a company-wide employee resource group, Spectra Women’s Network.
Open to all employees, Spectra Women’s Network will provide professional training and development workshops as well as networking opportunities to support Spectra’s female staffers.
To lead the new initiative, Spectra has named Vice President of Client Experience and Ticketing, Jacque Holowaty, as Women’s Network Executive Champion. In the role, Jacque will lead the group’s various volunteer committees and coordinate programming and events.
“The game-changing women in our company—and our industry—are powerful individually, and even more-so when they come together,” Holowaty said. “I am proud and honored to champion this new venture in every city, state, and country where Spectra teams call home.”
The initiative was launched by William Hughston, Spectra’s new SVP of Human Resources, who joined the company in August. Prior to his gig at Spectra, Hughston was Senior Vice President, Human Resources with Thompson Hospitality Corporation, where he oversaw similar initiatives on both a local and company-wide level. His background also includes various leadership positions with Aramark, Lowes Home Improvement, The Target Corporation, and The Home Depot.
“Building a diverse and inclusive company begins by fostering a culture that embraces and celebrates our team members’ differences,” William Hughston, Senior Vice President of Human Resources, said. “We’re excited for Spectra employees to come together to meet like-minded people, raise awareness on key issues, and share our personal and professional culture and values with one another.”
