The BCI has launched a new group, Women in Resilience (WiR), with the aim of connecting and empowering women in disciplines including business continuity, crisis management, emergency management, security, disaster recovery, risk and organizational resilience.
At present 30% of BCI members are female, as well as 25% of the active volunteer pool leading BCI chapters, forums and groups. WiR seeks to attract more women into the industry, and support, and champion those working in the field to become leaders and advance in their careers.
Heather Merchan, Director on the BCI Board commented that “This is an excellent opportunity for the BCI to offer its members the platform they desire to connect, support and empower industry professionals. I encourage readers to connect with the group and to get involved!”.
