Today we celebrate International Women’s Day- a holiday implemented over 100 years ago to recognize the achievements of women, while calling to action the need for women’s equality.
This day is particularly important to Rome Grinding Solutions. Rome has always been a majority women owned company, starting with co-founder Dolores Boster, then Bonnie Weaver, and is now under the leadership of Kate Rome. Dolores and her husband Dan set the precedent that gender expectations were not relevant in the company, and developing quality employees was the priority. The Boster’s daughter, Bonnie and her husband Mike Weaver then took over the operations and continued this employee-first mindset. Since Kate Rome has taken the role as President, she has carried the legacy of ensuring equal opportunities for women in the workplace.
