Subscribe to Össur Women’s Leadership Initiative
The number of female O&P practitioners in the United States is now at 20% and rising fast. This has led Össur to create the Össur Women’s Leadership Initiative (OWLI). Össur Women’s Leadership Initiative seeks to encourage and support the O&P profession by providing a forum for discussion and education with the goal of developing and strengthening the leadership skills of female O&P practitioners.
As a result, we hope to:
- Increase the volume of female leadership within the O&P industry
- Encourage fairness and equality in the workplace of O&P
- Eliminate conscious or unconscious gender biases in the workplace
- Create a positive, balanced perception of both male and female industry leaders
Membership is free and is open to everyone in the field, including students. We plan to begin our OWLI monthly blog in January 2015, and are organizing webinars and educational speakers as well.
