Join the ‘virtual cuppa’ about taking positives from the pandemic
Women in Health and Safety is back for the first time since the pandemic, with a ‘virtual cuppa’ for up to 100 people.
Rebecca Walpole, Health and Safety Manager at Freshfields Bruckhaus Deringer and host of the ‘virtual cuppa’
The theme of the get-together is ‘Designing the future – how do we want this lockdown and pandemic to make positive impact on our lives?’
It will run as a free-to-attend Zoom meeting and registration is open to all health and safety professionals. It doesn’t matter if you’re a man or a woman, previous attendee of a Women in Health and Safety event or not. All are welcome and up to 100 people can register.
The virtual cuppa will take place this Thursday 10 September 2020 at 16.00 BST.
Register to attend here.
Committee member Rebecca Walpole, Health and Safety Manager at Freshfields Bruckhouse Deringer, came up with the idea for the get-together. She said: “I’m really missing connectivity with the Women in Health and Safety network at the moment and could do with a chin-wag.”
Commenting on why she is looking forward to it, fellow committee member Heather Beach of The Healthy Work Company said “Health and safety professionals have worked so hard during this pandemic and we have missed the chance to network like we used to.”
On behalf of the whole Women in Health and Safety committee, we hope to see you there. And while our Chair, Dr Judith Grant, Director of Health & Wellbeing at Mace Group, is still battling with long COVID-19, we wish her a speedy recovery.
