Next month, the American Society of Safety Professionals will host a free, virtual summit on diversity, equity and inclusion (DEI).
“Diversity helps strengthen an organization in many ways, including the safety and health of its workforce,” said ASSP President Christine Sullivan, CSP, ARM, in a news release. “We are going to hear from experts and collect different perspectives from attendees on how we can elevate DEI in our profession.”
According to a news release, attendees will learn how DEI concepts relate to safety in the occupational safety and health industry. Comprised of sessions and discussions, the summit will also address how attendees can increase inclusiveness in their workplace safety cultures, according to the registration page.
“It’s so important to understand how societal issues such as racism and systemic inequities can impede career advancement, undermine workplace safety and disenfranchise workers,” Sullivan also said in the news release. “I look forward to engaging with summit attendees to experience their energy as we work together on meaningful change.”
The virtual summit will take place on January 26, 2023, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. CT.
Registration is now open and is first come, first served.
