The first element of DEI is diversity. But what happens when an organization is strategic in their hiring efforts to attract and employ a diverse workforce, but does not consider equitable solutions for ensuring the safety of these workers? Join this session for a discussion on how Melanie Adams, founder of Embher, a FR-clothing company for women, stepped up to the challenge of creating a product to ensure women can work safely. We will also discuss how to consider and plan for equitable solutions in your workplace.
By the end of this session, participants will:
- Examine recent advancements and initiatives in creating a more equitable Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) landscape for all workers.
- Analyze the challenges faced by women and other underrepresented individuals in accessing suitable PPE solutions, and explore how these challenges contribute to an inequitable workplace environment.
- Utilize the insights gathered from Melanie's story and the discussions in this session to facilitate meaningful conversations within your organization about the importance of providing equitable PPE solutions for all workers and ways to implement such measures effectively.
