Greylock Federal Credit Union will celebrate International Women’s Day on Friday, March 8th.  Greylock’s leadership philosophy is to promote gender equity in the workplace and in the community. Greylock has made it a priority to support efforts that encourage female empowerment with programs such as the WAM Theater, Berkshire Business and Professional Women, the Elizabeth Freeman Center, and Gladys Allen Brigham Community Center.

Greylock also hosts an internal Women’s Leadership Committee to inform and guide management around career opportunities and professional collaboration, work life balance, corporate culture, mentor opportunities, and philanthropic vision.

Vice President of Administration JamieEllen Moncecchi, who serves as chair of the committee, says she is proud to serve in this role. “Greylock is committed to supporting women as equal partners in the workplace and recognizes the vital role of women throughout our society. We have many dedicated employees who work tirelessly to ensure equal opportunity and share their wisdom and encouragement with all.”

Greylock invites its employees and members to wear red on Friday in honor of efforts around the world, but especially in our community, to support equality and leadership opportunities for women. Women who visit a Greylock branch will be given a red carnation as a token of Greylock’s appreciation.

There will also be a series of Days of Caring projects in which Greylock employees will donate their time and services to organizations such as Youth Center, Inc. in Adams, Berkshire Community Action Council, the Dalton CRA, Construct Inc., BRIDGE, Central Berkshire Habitat for Humanity, and the Elizabeth Freeman Center. Greylock staff will also be giving carnations to every woman in a number of area nursing homes on International Women’s Day.
