Green Dot Bioplastics sponsors Women Breaking the Mold Networking Forum
Emporia-based Green Dot Bioplastics is proud to co-sponsor and attend the 2019 Women Breaking the Mold Networking Forum in Nashville, Tennessee, in November.
“We are proud to sponsor this forum and to support the success of women in the plastics industry,” said Green Dot Bioplastics CEO Mark Remmert.
Organized by industry news platform Plastics News, Women Breaking the Mold Networking Forum has a mission to help support and nurture the growth of female professionals in the plastics industry and help them move to positions of greater authority. Speakers at the event include many top female executives sharing their journeys and success strategies and those offering advice in such areas as mentoring, recruitment/retention, overall issues facing female employees and working with customers and shareholders. Small group networking sessions foster communication among those in attendance.
According to event organizers, the 2019 Forum saw 65% growth in attendance over 2018 with women from 31 states attending.
“As a result of the outreach and support of the Women Breaking the Mold Networking Forum organizers, more than 200 women in plastics visited our display and connected with the Green Dot Bioplastics team,” Sales and Marketing Director, Sarah Harbaugh said. “Many of the attendees are owners/operators of plastic processing companies which is an encouraging sign of the future of women in our industry.”
