Since retiring from her position as the Institute for Work & Health (IWH)'s director of human resources and corporate services in March 2021, Mary Cicinelli continues to work with the Institute as a member of the XXII World Congress on Safety and Health at Work project team. Cicinelli is playing a key role in the planning, implementation and follow-up of the XXII World Congress, bringing her acumen in people management, budgeting and financing, and corporate services. IWH is a national co-host of the world forum, which takes place September 19-22, 2021.
Prior to joining IWH over 20 years ago, Cicinelli was the team manager for Field Hockey Canada, a position she got not long after graduating from university with a degree in physical education. That job took her all the way to Seoul, Korea, after the team qualified for the 1988 summer Olympics. Today, Cicinelli holds a number of volunteer positions within the international field hockey federation.
