WISE Up- Knowing and Owning the Ring - We all will step into a "ring" in life, but how we perform in it is up to us.
The battles relentlessly come in different forms or fashions. From busyness, to unexpected commitments, to what we face at home, work, and play, and how we show up can make or break us.
In this discussion, Emily will talk about how to not only step up but step in to "the ring" with confidence. She will discuss the power of self-awareness in "the ring" as well as knowing who's in your corner to help you WISE up and take action for whatever life may throw at you.
Emily is dedicated to helping people understand how
and why people do what they do so they can better show up, wise up, and perform at their top potential.
Tales of the Tape: In this discussion we will take a deep dive into the “sucks” of professional safety. We will explore the underlying beliefs that organizations, industries and safety professionals hold about safety, how these beliefs impact the role of the practitioner, and how safety and the practitioner are "measured".
We will discuss how those responsible for safety can understand what must be measured to have a true 'tale of the tape' and ensure a more impactful role.
According to the Bureau of Labor and Statistics, Hispanic and Latino workers make approximately 25% of the workforce and sustain approximately 20% of fatal injuries in the construction industry.

This panel will explore several strategies used by a number of safety professionals from companies with a statistically high number of Hispanic and Latino workers, how those strategies have helped develop and grow their safety culture and the overall benefits this increased engagement has brought to their entire company.
