Abstract - Women in Glassmaking

Gender and diversity issues are important and recurring themes much more in the news today than at any other time in history. Companies that score well on diversity in general deliver better results. This session will look at what the container glass industry is doing in promoting equality? Even if traditionally our industry is still male dominated, increasing numbers of women are joining the ranks and getting jobs not just in downstream processes but also in more technical and leadership roles.
