Hersman, CEO of the National Safety Council. "We are excited to recognize the next generation of Marion Martins through the establishment of this inaugural award." Qualifications include at least one of the following: influenced other women to pursue careers in the safety field; opened doors for women in a safety employment setting that are historically and professionally limited to them; and advanced opportunities for women within the safety field.
