Come and see us at the Alberta H&S Conference!
Something wonderful that WHOSS membership can give you is access to a growing network of female safety practitioners/professionals across Alberta industries.
The New Year has just begun and we are fueled by ideas of self-improvement and resolutions. If you have career goals as part of your focus in 2019, it’s time to step out of your professional bubble and start meeting new people.
Networking is not just for job searches, most high ranking professionals have a network that goes far beyond their inner work circle. We need people in our lives that we can bounce ideas off without fear of repercussion, or fear of looking or sounding stupid. We need people to teach us new skills, people who will share their experiences and career paths. It could be a mentor relationship or just a series of social events that gets you out and talking about the next steps in your career.
For more information of the benefits of having a large female network backing your career development, see the attached online articles from McKinsey Quarterly and Fast Company. There is now scientific evidence proving what we have all known forever; women need other women to get ahead.
If it’s about taking on new projects at your place of work, tackling age old problems with a new angle or simply being able to speak candidly about industry issues with like-minded people, WOHSS is a place that will help you grow and accomplish your goals.
