WORD Conversations – New Online Series
Our women’s events the past two years during IEC provided an opportunity for the women of our industry to get together, have some conversations, share experiences, give/get advice and network. To keep the conversation going, introduced a new element to our WORD (Women of Rubber Division) initiative this year. This new element is an online series called WORD Conversations where we feature discussions with a variety of amazing women throughout the year. Each hour-long online event includes a conversation with an inspirational woman followed by a breakout room session for attendees to participate in networking and Q&A. This is just another step in our working to bring together the women of our industry and provide an opportunity to share, learn from each other and network. The events are held via Zoom and registration is free for all who wish to join. 


Our next WORD Conversations event will be held in November. Check back for details. 
Our next WORD event will be the WORD Workshop on Monday, October 4th at our International Elastomer Conference. This Women's Workshop is designed for the women of rubber and will be an interactive session with substance and humor that will provide steps you can begin to implement, as well as longer-term areas of focus to help you reach your next level of excellence. This workshop will be facilitated by a powerhouse team - communication expert, Leslie Ungar, and Dr. Tamsin Astor, Chief Habit Scientist, International Speaker & Author. The event will conclude with an opportunity to network and empower one another during a light reception. We hope you can join us! Register at
