On Wednesday, February 28, 2024, kick off the new year by joining ISSA Hygieia Network for its upcoming networking and leadership conference — Workplace Allies: The Power of Having Someone in Your Corner. This information-packed event will take place from 9:00 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. ET at Georgia-Pacific’s headquarters in Atlanta.

“We’re excited to start the new year off on a strong note and invite people to learn more about the importance of developing strong, professional relationships,” said ISSA Hygieia Network Program Director Dr. Felicia Townsend. “We have a phenomenal lineup of speakers and look forward to hearing their thoughts on how allyship in the workplace can enhance one’s career personally and professionally.”

Attendees will gain strategies to better advocate and support employees from every level in the organization. Additionally, they will gain insights into making their organizations more inclusive for everyone to thrive and discover how securing mentors, sponsors and peer relationships can help them reach their goals.

“We’re especially honored to have Jeffery Tobias Halter, president of YWomen, to present his workshop, Engaging ALL Allies: Moving from Awareness to Advocacy,” added Townsend. “This will be a great opportunity for attendees to hear about crucial topics such as gender equity through a lens of intersectionality and how it will help drive a competitive advantage for them in today’s workforce.”
