The Orion Women’s Network, (MyOWN) is helping build gender diversity within Orion and supports women as they advance their careers into leadership positions. In 2019, a handful of senior women executives established the Orion Women’s Network (MyOWN) with the aim of inspiring and building the confidence of Orion’s women employees.
We host interactive global webinars and events with speakers on key topics, open to all. The network and our activities can be leveraged by anyone who is looking for inspiration to grow and develop and to get better connected internally hence the acronym – MyOWN!
MyOWN is committed to engaging with our global network of women, providing opportunities for growth, development, mentorship and inspiration. We come together periodically to brainstorm about topics and activities that may inspire confidence to this community. MyOWN is not an exclusive group, this is an inclusive group and all ideas are welcome.
Recent activities include:
