100 Women - Making a Difference in Safety

WISE
100 Women—Making a Difference in Safety

 

ASSE will celebrate its 100th anniversary on October 14, 2011. But Women in Safety Engineering (WISE) is working now to commemorate this momentous occasion. We will honor 100 women who have, or are currently, making a difference through their work and dedication to protecting people, property and the environment.

In October 2009, WISE began honoring up to four women in its triannual newsletter and will continue to do so until October 2011. In October 2011, WISE will consolidate the profiles of those 100 dedicated women into a single publication, 100 Women—Making a Difference in Safety, and will début it at the 2011 ASSE Leadership Conference.

WISE plans to honor women throughout the ages who dedicate their lives to making a difference in the lives of others through their promotion and innovation in safety, health and environmental issues. The honorees will not all be ASSE members. Some paved the way long before ASSE was even founded, like Rebecca Luken who made a difference in manufacturing safety in the 1800s, while other nominees, such as Trish Ennis and Terry Wigfall, are ASSE members making a difference today.

Our honorees will be diverse. They will not all be public figures, well known or famous; they will be everyday heroes making a difference in the lives of others through their commitment to protecting people, property and the environment.
