ISSA Hygieia Network opens membership

ISSA has recently announced the opening of membership to the ISSA Hygieia Network. The ISSA Hygieia Network is a women's forum with a mission of advancing and retaining female professionals in all sectors and at all levels of seniority and experience within the global cleaning community. Named after the Greek goddess of cleaning and hygiene, this vibrant worldwide community will provide members with ongoing education, networking opportunities, professional development, and industry recognition - in addition to the strong sense of purpose and self-actualisation that comes with being involved in this worthwhile cause.

“Facilitating ongoing networking and commercial opportunities for our members in the international cleaning industry is at the core of ISSA's mission," said ISSA executive director emeritus, John Garfinkel. "The ISSA Hygieia Network - and its work for the advancement of women in our industry - is a natural fit. We want to encourage companies to look to their workforces to help diversify and develop exemplary leadership.”
ISSA members interested in joining the ISSA Hygieia Network can sign up online at free of charge for one year until 31 December 2015.

Since its creation in November 2014, an advisory council of female leaders, chaired by Dr. Ilham Kadri, president of Diversey Care, has been developing the network's framework for membership and services. In addition to leadership development for managers and executives, the education programme will also help address front-line worker challenges, such as literacy levels, training for certification, and on-the-job practice.
