Why are women not bothering with Fellowship? #PutaPinInIt

Within IOSH only 1% of the membership are fellows and within this narrow band, the gender imbalance sits at 20% female and 80% male. 

Stuart Hughes, current IOSH president has committed not to wear his Fellowship pin until the gender imbalance is removed. 50/50, parity, equity.  

This webinar will look at understanding the barriers to fellowship for females.
