Why It Matters
The OSH industry and its leaders should be as diverse as all the different businesses and employees it serves. Workers are more likely to respond to safety initiatives that are spurred by people to whom they can relate and trust. Having a diverse group of safety professionals helps ensure this. Furthermore, many women have made great contributions to the safety profession, and we want to ensure that there is a place for more female-led initiatives in the future.
