ASSE Group Seeks Nominees for '100 Women Project'

Women in Safety Engineering (WISE), a common interest group of the American Society of Safety Engineers, will honor 100 women who have, or are currently, making a difference through their work and dedication to protecting people, property, and the environment, as part of ASSE's 100th anniversary celebrations in 2011. This week WISE issued a call for nominations.

The group honored four women in its monthly newsletter to members in October 2009 and says it will continue to do so until October 2011 when the group will consolidate the profiles and nominations of 100 dedicated women into a single publication titled 100 Women -- Making a Difference in Safety. Nominees do not have to be ASSE members. Rather, the group said it will honor women who have dedicated their lives to making a difference in the lives of others through their work, dedication, and innovation in safety, health, and environmental work.

WISE was established by ASSE and its members to foster the advancement of women in the SH&E profession. The groups officers include Chair Kelly Bernish; Vice Chair Jennifer Zipeto; Secretary Terrie Norris, who also serves as ASSE senior vice president; and Treasurer Maureen Johnson.

"Some paved the way long before ASSE was founded in 1911, like Rebecca Luken who made a difference in manufacturing safety protection devices in the 1800s," Bernish said. "Other possible nominees, such as ASSE Professional Development Vice President Patricia Ennis and Terry Wigfall, are ASSE members making a difference today. Our honorees will be diverse. They won't all be public figures, well known, or famous; they will be everyday heroes making a difference in the lives of others."

To nominate a woman for the WISE "100 Women Project" complete the nomination form on the ASSE WISE Web site at www.asse.org/practicespecialties/wise/100womenform.php.
