In her role as HPRC Executive Director, she provides strategic leadership and group facilitation to help the consortium and individual member companies achieve maximum impact within the marketplace. 

Opening Plenary

Tuesday, May 21st
10:30am to 12:00pm

Our opening plenary, a series of rapid-fire presentations rolled into a cohesive whole, will feature truly disruptive efforts to advance collection and expand the use of recycled plastics. The plenary will push attendees to think outside the box and challenge their assumptions about the traditional models that need to change to take the life cycle of plastics into the next generation (note that the 2019 Re|focus Sustainability Innovation awards will also be announced during this session).
