Date & Time
Wednesday, October 19, 2022, 8:15 AM - 9:45 AM
Majo Thurman

The importance of having a strong organizational Health and Safety program couldn’t be more evident than it is now, as we emerge from a global pandemic. With the spotlight placed firmly on these programs, the Environmental, Health and Safety (EHS) departments in charge of them have the opportunity to expand their leadership role and broaden their impact, for the better of the company as a whole. In this keynote address, Majo Thurman will share lessons learned at Fortune 500 firm Rockwell Automation as she managed cross-functional teams, adeptly delegated and defined work streams, built relationships and influenced global teams, and managed unexpected change, while integrating EHS further into the business. She’ll show how her team is now embracing this leadership role and using the momentum and learnings to strengthen a culture of safety and agility that can help the company clear hurdles (think supply chain issues), boost its environment, social and governance (ESG) and sustainability performance, and attract the best talent in the tightest of markets.

Key Takeaways:

  • Realize the impact that a strong EHS team has on thee business as a whole 
  • Tap what you learned to expand your influence
  • Boost the company as a whole with strong ESG score and differentiators to attract talent
