OneWISH for International Women’s Day 2022 – ‘Break The Bias’ 8 March 10am – 3pm GMT 24 Feb 2022
The theme for International Women’s Day (IWD) this year is ‘Break The Bias’. OneWISH is working to break biases in the field of H&S, and we agree with IWD when they say that “whether deliberate or unconscious, bias makes it difficult for women to move ahead. Knowing that bias exists isn’t enough, action is needed to level the playing field.”
To support IWD and this theme we are hosting a series of presentations and panels to explore this subject more:
- The morning will look at what bias looks like in 2022 and how we can understand it in the context of the H&S world, including a presentation on bias and diversity, a panel showcasing latest research, and a case study of some rising stars talking about the bias and challenges they have faced and are overcoming.
- The afternoon will showcase leadership in improving diversity, equity and inclusion in H&S, including presentations and Q&As from those working to create change. We are also celebrating the fact that for the first time ever, five of the largest H&S membership bodies in the world all have female Presidents. The 5 Presidents are joining a panel, chaired by our own Chair to discuss female leadership and their own learning.
We hope that together we can move the conversation forward, inspire some action and encourage people to join us in our mission!
