Strong collaboration with the Student Local Sections, Mentorship and Professional Development, Women in IH, Leadership and Management, and Career and Employment Services

Group dynamics

Our members range from students to early career-long professionals, with a varied mix of IH/OEHS practitioners from industry, academia, government/military, and consulting. Our welcoming and active group engages primarily through our virtual committee and social meetings. We are always looking to welcome new members who can participate in a manner that works for their busy lifestyle:

  • Joining a project team, such as creating a brochure, writing an article, or reviewing an award application
  • Participate in monthly committee meetings—provide feedback, recommend areas to explore, and communicate opportunities to collaborate.
  • One-and-done micro-volunteering tasks as the needs arise.
  • Mentorship and professional development.
  • Leadership development (serving as an officer of the group or project team leader).
