The ISSA Hygieia Network has introduced a regional professional development event series and the first ever Hygieia online member network through a partnership with Wisr.
Called HIGHER, the first event of the series will take place in November.
The ISSA Hygieia Network is an ISSA Charities signature program dedicated to the advancement and retention of women in the cleaning industry.
Meredith Reuben, Chair of the Hygieia Council, and CEO of EBP Supply Solutions said the ISSA Hygieia Network has a vision to enable all women in the cleaning industry to accelerate their careers.
“There are many of us who are willing to share our experiences and advice for those just starting out or eager to advance,” she said. “We want women to be inspired at the regional ISSA Hygieia Network events and to continue the conversation online in our networking community.”
The 2019 HIGHER event will focus on the personal and professional development of the women in attendance and will feature three leaders in the industry: Diana Le, product UX designer, Brain Corp.; Sally Schopmeyer, president, Maintenance Inc.; and Lydia Work, president, American Paper Converting. Attendees will also gain access to career workshops, flash mentoring, and more to help create a concrete action plan for reaching professional goals.
Members of the ISSA Hygieia Network’s free online community will be able to access educational resources and training opportunities to support their development and advancement and connect with colleagues across the cleaning industry. The online network will be officially unveiled by Wisr CEO Kate Volzer at the ISSA Hygieia Network’s annual awards reception at the ISSA Show North America 2019 in Las Vegas.
