2021 Women’s Summit Offers Transformative Strategies for the Future
In less than two weeks, TAPPI’s 2021 Women’s Summit will virtually bring together women and men throughout the pulp, paper, packaging, tissue and converting industries to discuss key topics prevalent and integral to women in today’s workforce. With the theme, “Shifting gears through transformative strategies,” the FREE 2021 Summit, June 30 from 12pm – 2pm ET, focuses on using collective ideas and collaboration to help companies and individuals successfully navigate through challenges using innovative strategies.
Attendees have the unique opportunity to engage with each other during an interactive keynote presentation delivered by Heather Wishart-Smith, SVP of Technology and Innovation at Jacobs and Forbes column contributor. A key feature of her presentation, Choose Your Innovation, includes having attendees actively participate by choosing from a variety of topics taken from her Forbes column. Participants will also play a game of Innovation Bingo during the presentation and have a chance to win prizes.
After the keynote, attendees will join their peers in moderated breakout rooms featuring activities centered around innovation. Discussions explore various techniques that encourage divergent thinking and how they can be used successfully in the workplace. Summit attendees will learn strategies to think more innovatively and leave with tools they can apply at work and in their personal lives.
