Women In Plastics: Welcome. Intelligent. Present.

 

Our Vision

The Vision of ‘Women in Plastics’ is to highlight females in the plastics industry that are doing great work, in every type of capacity. We aim to praise, highlight and ultimately reward the good work that is being done every day. We will recognise history’s visionaries, today’s role models and tomorrow’s thought leaders to inspire and encourage more females to join the sector.

Our Mission - Recognition, Mentoring & Support

Our mission is to ensure the plastics industry realises that there are lots of intelligent, successful and powerful women within its ranks that deserve recognition for their work and can act as inspiration for a new generation of women that can plug the ever-worrying skills gap.   The plastics industry is changing and women deserve to be recognised for their positive contribution to business from Board to shop floor level.

Our Strategy

Our strategy is to provide a forum for the plastics industry to group together for support, to mentor, to encourage and to learn. We will deliver networking events, skills workshops and opportunities for recognition to share ideas, thoughts and strategies that can help the entire industry.
