NAEM Women’s Leadership Roundtable 2019

Why Attend


Would you like to learn how to transform yourself into the leader you aspire to be? Have you ever wondered how those you admire achieved their success? Are there specific leadership challenges you're having that you would like to address?


NAEM's Women's Leadership Roundtable is a chance for you to take a step back, reflect on your path and build a new set of skills that will strengthen your leadership effectiveness, no matter where you are on your career path.


Learning for Women EHS Leaders at All Career Stages

Build Your Business Acumen

This year's agenda includes skills-building sessions on leading through influence, essentialism, and executive presence. These sessions will accelerate your ability to align your programs with your company's goals and how to make an effective business case for new spending. 

Develop your Executive Presence

Learn how to be noticed, and how to get your message across with skills building workshops on the attributes successful leaders share.


Build your Network

Join a dynamic community of EHS&S peers who can share their strategies for overcoming common career challenges, and mentor you through your next cycle of growth.

Gain Leadership Insight from In-Depth Sessions


The program agenda was developed by a committee of corporate environment, health and safety (EHS) and sustainability leaders to create a dynamic community of female leaders and to cultivate personal leadership skills through targeted learning sessions and discussions.


These NAEM members have given many hours of their valuable time to organize and plan this event, with the goal of fostering a dynamic discussion of women's leadership issues specific to the EHS&S discipline. Be sure to say hi and thank them at the event!
