Kate will share with us her experience of being a 'high-potential' woman in a series of male dominated, global industries – including metal packaging and medical device manufacture. Her interesting story starts when studying Engineering Science at Oxford University, with a final year project on jet engine design, to now being responsible for strategic & practical operational leadership, business transformation, and P&L performance of multiple international plants within Thermo Fisher Scientific’s Speciality Diagnostics Group.
During this dynamic “fireside chat” you’ll hear Kate talk about some of the “gender norms” she has encountered in her career, and how she overcame them.
