For the third edition running, Interplas 2021 will welcome back industry association, Women in Plastics. Following on from previous success with both networking events and seminars, Women in Plastics is set to hold its biggest event yet in 2021.

The Women in Plastics initiative aims to highlight the diverse and exciting roles available across the plastics industry to showcase the possibilities a career can offer to the next generation of talented young people. It also acts as a networking forum to bring together knowledge sharing and best practice to enable more women to reach their potential through not only skills and qualifications, but also funding opportunities and skills development.

At Interplas visitors will be able to network with the founders of Women in Plastics to find out more about the benefits of joining and opportunities available. There will also be information about how to support the initiative and promote gender equality in business, as well as information on how to recruit new talent and make a company attractive to all.

Women in Plastics hosts its own conference session, focusing on attracting, training and retaining talent in the industry. With so many questions around quotas and the right people for the job, should you put people in a job due to gender, race or sexual orientation? The panel will discuss quotas, asking is it simply a promoted tokenism, box-ticking exercise, which could represent an unsustainable short-term fix?
