Global Building Services, Inc., cares deeply about the communities in which we live and serve in. As stewards of our community we believe it is within our duty not only to provide a safe and clean environment to those we serve but to take an active role in participating in forms of charity throughout our nation. Giving back has been a key part of our company's success the last 35 years and we continue to involve ourselves in community building activities and programs. Every year we partake in a variety of donations and volunteer work for programs such as breast cancer awareness efforts, food pantries, senior and youth outreach centers, and local school and sports programs. We also proudly donate 50% of the proceeds from the 1st month of our service contracts to hunger relief charities. When you partner with Global, you're partnering with a company as dedicated to it's community as it is to the service we provide to you.
For 15 years we have been avid supporters of the National Breast Cancer Foundation, having some of our own senior executives being survivors themselves. As a people driven organization, we value the stories of our employees and are eager to continue our support in bringing the team together for a good cause. We proudly participate and sponsor our team members for the annual Relay for Life held in honor of breast cancer awareness.
We encourage partners, customers, and everyone in our community to find ways you can help advocate for or support the National Breast Cancer Foundation.
As a minority-owned business, Global understands the importance of providing equitable opportunity for career development and executive representation for traditionally underrepresented groups in the industry. In order to go beyond simple understanding, Global Building Services supports and carries out policies that aim to empower women in the workplace and foster a work culture that promotes diversity in leadership roles throughout the organization. Led by Vice President of Operations Alma Ochoa, a 35 year company veteran, Global holds routine gatherings to discuss the challenges presented to women and minorities in the industry space to determine how the company can best continue to take a progressive approach to promoting equality and respect throughout the company.
