The Federal Budget may have forgotten about women in the workforce, but we certainly haven't. At our upcoming Women in Packaging virtual forum on 28 October, our community will be enriched by listening to women with purpose and passion, who have aligned these values to achieve career success while making a positive impact on the planet and its people.

Panellists will include co-founder and director of The Better Packaging Co, Kate Bezar; founder and CEO of Planet Protector, Joanne Howarth; co-founder and director of tna, Nadia Taylor; and Brisbane-based plastics researcher and PhD Candidate at the University of Queensland, Nicole Garofano (MAIP).

The panel session will be moderated by PKN and Food & Drink Business publisher Lindy Hughson.

The panel session will kick off at 10am, after the keynote address by behavioural economist Sonia Friedrich that starts at 9am. Read more about her address here.

The event will take place during the 2020 AIP Australasian Packaging Conference, taking place from 27-30 October. More information here
