The upcoming Plastics Extrusion World Expo will include a panel discussion on key issues surrounding the professional development of women in the plastics industry. The panel, Women in Plastics: Empowering Industry Change, will feature high-achieving women from across the world of plastics sharing their perspectives on breaking through in this traditionally male-dominated industry.
