Taco Tuesday Ep. 11 - The Genesis of Women in Occupational Health and Safety Society
This week I had the opportunity to interview Paula Campkin, Vice-President of the Safety Centre of Excellence for Energy Safety Canada.
Paula shares her experience as to what it is like to work in a male dominated industry, the challenges she faced and how she overcame them. Paula identified there was a gap, other women were experiencing it too, so she did something about it! Paula co-founded the Women in Occupational Health & Safety Society (WOHSS), an organization with the mission to foster the advancement of women working in health and safety in Canada, to build better futures for women in OH&S. WOHSS is dedicated to support, educate, and help facilitate the advancement of women in the Health and Safety field.
Paula openly talks about some of the sexism she experienced and the things she did to create awareness in her male colleagues that certain behaviours are not acceptable! This is a great episode for women and men alike. We discuss how men can become authentic allies in the movement towards eliminating the leadership gender gap.
We help you achieve your company's mission by maximizing the human potential across your workforce.
