Kia ora koutou members and supporters - What a few weeks we have had! Two weeks ago, we welcomed the launch of our Sidney Dekker Masterclass series, the first of four webinars. For those that purchase tickets, recordings will be available online for one month, so if you aren’t available for the live sessions, you can watch the recordings before the following webinar. There is a lot of deep thinking required, but that is why it's called a Masterclass.
One of the things I love about the variety of experts we get in front of members at NZISM is the diversity of thought and perspectives these experts provide. I hope as many of you as possible get to engage with Sidney over the following month.
The other milestone we hit, was having our President Robyn Bennett address burnout in the workplace on the TVNZ Breakfast show. This was a moment for all of us to celebrate at NZISM. There has been a lot of effort invested in getting our organisation recognised as an expert voice on health and safety in New Zealand. I said right from the beginning of our media engagement strategy, that I would know we had finally broken through all the noise when our President represented the profession on TVNZ Breakfast. It's the start of mainstream media recognising our role as a trusted source of information on health and safety in New Zealand. Well done Robyn, we are so proud of how you represented our members and the whole of the profession.
Thank you for joining the Women in Safety Excellence (WISE) network.
We hold various online and face-to-face events throughout the year and if one occurs near you, we would love to meet you in person.
LinkedIn - Please make sure you join our LinkedIn group to stay connected and on top of our planned webinars and events. We encourage you to post anything in the WISE group page that you think other network members would find useful or inspiring. Please don't be shy. The more we reach out, the more we connect with each other, and the more we can help each other on our journeys.
We might send you the occasional email but our web page on the NZISM website is always the best place to go for an overview of what's coming up in the WISE calendar.
