Women in FM: Best Ways to Advocate for Yourself in the Work Place

Watch On-demand: Five leading FMs discuss how to close the gender gap

This Women in FM webcast brings together a panel of women with widely-varied career paths to talk about their experiences in the industry. They discuss their strategies for success and for addressing fears and frustrations in the workplace. Overall, they advocate for the increased presence and leadership of women in facilities management.

Women tend to feel like they have to work so much harder to prove that they can do the same work as their male counterparts. The panel discusses to go close that gender gap, especially when it comes to compensation.

In addition, women have always been taught to be more aware of their surroundings. The panel shares how this type of mindset affects how they take on their role while working in facilities. They also share advice to help those who find themselves more anxious in these situations.

The panel includes:

Christine Burkett, Senior Facility Manager, Sam’s Facilities Support

Machion Jackson, Assistant Superintendent of Operations, Detroit Public Schools Community District

Sarah Bergstrom, Architectural Assessor

Julie Johnson Roberts, Co-Founder and Chief Strategy Officer, Lambent

Jessica Bickel, Faculties’ Coordinator, Reece Group USA
