Women in Safety & health group (WISH) invite you to attend their first webinar session for 2022. Webinar: Presenting to a conference, will be held on Tuesday 8th February at 14:30 - 15:30 AEDT

Have you ever seen a call for papers submission open for a conference and wanted to do a submission but were unsure on where to start? Do you have the knowledge you want to share with your industry peers but are unsure of how to make it appealing to them? Have you done submission in the past and not been successful?
