UNISON: Empowering Women

15 March, 9:00am - 4:00pm
DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel Nottingham - Gateway    

On International Women’s Day, UNISON’s National Health and Safety Committee and National Women’s Committee will be hosting a webinar on the hazards in women’s work.

We will hear from a variety of speakers looking at the hazards women face in the workplace and how we can organise around them. We will be joined by international speaker, Professor Karen Messing, from the University of Quebec whose ground-breaking book ‘One Eyed Science’ published in the late 90s exposed the lack of research and protections for women workers.

You will need to register in advance to take part.  After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the webinar.
