Presentation prepared for the Professional Standards Committee (PSC) at CIWEM in 2018. I am involved in CIWEM: the professional chartership titles I hold – CEng and C.WEM – have been awarded by CIWEM; also I have been a member of CIWEM’s PSC since 2015. The presentation relates to a couple of statements in CIWEM’s corporate plan (2017-2021) pdf :
In working towards our vision, we will ensure […] we are accessible and relevant.
By promoting the importance of, and access to, healthy environments across different genders, religions, sexualities, ethnicities, disabilities, levels of education and levels of wealth.
I took this interest in accessibility and inclusion as a starting point for my talk. My presentation, in particular, is about women in leadership positions and group contexts… a big (and sometimes controversial) topic in itself.
