Women Influencing Graybar's Success

Women Influencing Graybar's Success (WINGS) was created in 2008 to give women who work at Graybar an opportunity to connect through networking, professional development and mentoring. At Graybar we have many vibrant and talented women who are making an impact professionally and in the communities where they live and work. WINGS brings women together and gives them a unique way to share their experiences, discuss development strategies and talk about workplace challenges.
