New for 2024, we’re bringing together a panel of top female safety leaders who have shattered barriers in their journey. They will share their experiences and challenges while they explore the broader impact of diversity and equity in leadership roles, discussing how it benefits not only the organizations but also enriches the safety profession.

This half-day educational forum is an exclusive opportunity to position your organization as a supporter of women in OHS and be part of the crucial conversation around PPE and safety leadership.  Join us in making the ProtectHer Symposium a landmark event that not only addresses vital issues in women’s workplace safety but also paves the way for a more inclusive and diverse future.
