Women in Safety Engineering


WISE Announcements and Coming Events

Mentoring Applications Accepted until October 15th

The WISE Mentoring program successfully connects today’s most talented and experienced women mentors with rising and aspiring mentees. This pairing is designed to encourage and empower mentees to more effectively advance their careers through alignment with identified business objective, skill development, career option consideration, and network formation. All discussions are strictly confidential between the two parties.

If you are an SH&E practitioner seeking to chart a successful career path or a seasoned pro eager to share experiences and insight, please visit the ASSE WISE website for more information. WISE will be making new 1-year matches for the program in October. If you are looking for a mentor in the safety industry or are interested in being a mentor, please fill out an on-line application by October 15, 2014.


Meet other WISE Members at Your Local ASSE Chapter

While attending your local ASSE Chapter events, be sure to introduce yourself to other women and ask your ChapterWISE Rep to introduce you to WISE members. Don't know who your local WISE rep is? See the ChapterWISE contact list in the right sidebar of this web page! Help your ChapterWISE rep with ideas for networking or WISE events and activities and get involved to network and show what women EHS professionals can accomplish!

WISE has been established to foster the advancement of women in the safety, health and environmental (SH&E) profession through the objectives contained in the mission statement.
