ISSA Hygieia Network Development


As the leading professional organization within the cleaning industry, ISSA was looking for ways to improve its member services and better support the development of industry professionals.


With a disproportionate number of female professionals in the cleaning industry, Mulberry helped the ISSA establish an organization dedicated to educating and advancing females at all levels of experience. Named after the Greek goddess of cleaning, the Hygieia Network is the industry’s first women’s network for the global cleaning industry. Mulberry leveraged its deep industry connections to help establish the network’s first board of directors, crafted the organization’s mission and governance, and executed an aggressive communications campaign to convey the benefits of the network and drive interest.
