Registration Now Open for the ISSA Hygieia Networking & Leadership Conference in Ohio

April 10, 2024

On Wednesday, June 5, 2024, join the ISSA Hygieia Network for its upcoming networking and leadership conference—Workplace Allies: The Power of Having Someone in Your Corner. This information-packed conference, which includes a networking lunch, will take place from 8:45 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. at Spartan Chemical Co. Inc.’s headquarters in Maumee, Ohio.

“We’re excited to announce our latest networking and leadership conference,” said ISSA Hygieia Network Program Director Dr. Felicia Townsend. “We have assembled a fantastic lineup of speakers and invite people to come and learn about the significance of workplace relationships and developing allyships.”

Attendees will gain new strategies on how to become better advocates and supporters of employees from every level in their organization. Additionally, they will receive insights into how they can make 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 Kim Graham Lee, Chief Allyship officer and former CEO of Integrating Women Leader’s Foundation (IWL), kickoff the event with her workshop, The 3A’s of Allyship: Awareness, Authenticity, and ACTION!” added Townsend. “This will be a great opportunity for attendees to learn how gender bias shows up in the workplace all too frequently and devalues women.”

Other guest speakers include:

  • John Swigart, Spartan Chemical President
  • Cali Sartor, Spartan Chemical Vice President of Marketing and Advertising
  • Rachel Sanchez, Prestige Maintenance USA CEO

As part of this can’t-miss event, all attendees are invited to join a special Cleaning & Cocktails Reception and Fireside Chat taking place June 4 at 5:00 p.m. at the Hilton Garden Inn Toledo/Perrysburg in nearby Perrysburg, Ohio.

This conference is sponsored by Spartan Chemical. Registration is open now, with pricing starting at US$89 for ISSA Members and $119 for nonmembers. Group discounts are also available.
