Women in Plastics - the healthcare discussion at Med Tech Innovations Expo

 

When:
Thursday 16th May 2019
13:00 - 13-40 @ HEALTHTECH STAGE

Where:
Hall 2, The NEC
Birmingham
B40 1NT
United Kingdom 

We are excited to announce our panel discussion, 'Women in Plastics-the healthcare discussion' taking place at Med Tech Innovations Expo on 16 May 2019.

This panel discussion will ask women working with plastics in the modern healthcare industries what challenges and opportunities they face in 2019. It will ask whether there is enough visibility of role models to encourage more women into the sector, and look at the benefits of mentoring. 

We’ll ask if gender balance and equality is better in healthcare plastics than the wider plastics industry, and, if not, invite suggestions for improvements.
The panel will discuss how innovation is driving the healthcare industries and technologies are enablers for this.
