Vallen, a Sonepar Company, has created VICKIE, a women’s resource group designed to help grow and develop the careers of women in the workplace and support Vallen’s mission and values.

Launched in January 2020, the group is named VICKIE, which is an acronym for "Voices Inspiring Change, Knowledge, Innovation and Empowerment".

The VICKIE Resource Group will organize regular activities and information-sharing centered around these core pillars:

  • Nourish – Maintaining good health for our minds, bodies and spirits
  • Care – Engaging with our communities through volunteer efforts
  • Celebrate – Sharing our successes to encourage and motivate others
  • Learn – Continuing education to broaden our knowledge and expertise
  • Innovate – Leveraging technology and talent to elevate Vallen as an industry leader
  • Giving Back to Vallen – Adding value by building networks and resources

The ultimate goal is to increase the number of professional women employed by and contributing to the long-term success of Vallen, while also supporting and encouraging current Vallen women associates to reach higher levels in the organization.

Vallen will accomplish this goal by helping provide an inclusive workplace that encourages women to be recruited for professional positions and opportunities. Vallen will provide support for women to develop their skills and foster a workplace that retains and promotes women to high levels in the organization.

"At Vallen, we support all of our team members and yet we create opportunities to show, share, and be strong around diversity," said Chuck Delph, President of Vallen North America. "It is what makes us great."
