Are You Ready to Take Action?
According to a study done by Pew Research Center, about four-in-ten working women (42%) in the United States say they have faced gender discrimination. Many also say they have experienced some sort of workplace discrimination or know someone who has. This April, TAPPI’s 6th Annual Women’s Summit in Atlanta, Georgia, will address this important topic.
Open to everyone – TAPPI members and non-members alike, the Summit was developed to provide a forum for women and men in the pulp, paper, packaging, tissue and converting industries to discuss topics prevalent and integral to women in today's workforce.
With the theme, "Embracing Equity and Taking Action in the Workforce,” the 2023 Women’s Summit, April 22 from 1pm – 5pm, includes in-depth discussions focused on:
- Diversity, equity, and inclusivity
- Overcoming unconscious bias in the workplace
- Building relationships with allies in the Pulp & Paper industry
- Leading by example
- Addressing issues head-on
- Developing a framework for success
Attendees also will enjoy a thought-provoking, interactive session with panelists who will share their diverse experiences. Following the event, there will be a reception from 5:00pm to 7:00pm allowing for more networking and fun activities.
