Women in the Lubricants Industry’ conference and I hope this event can continue well into the future…”

Alison Fisher, Lubrizol

The proceedings were chaired by Andrianne Philippou (Lube magazine) and the opening and closing address given by David Hopkinson (UKLA President, Multisol CEO).

“It was really encouraging to hear people engage in the talks about what we can do to improve diversity and to develop the next generation of talent. It was evident a lot of people benefited from mentoring, training and development to empower personal growth. The key action from the event is the responsibility of those that attended and we as an industry, now have, to act and inspire current and future generations for this vital industry.”

“I am sure we will look back in years to come and remember today as a catalyst for positive change in our industry. Many thanks to the UKLA and LUBE magazine for making this happen’’.

“A totally inspiring event that not only gave us much on the day, but more importantly gave us solid ideas to take way and implement in our day-to-day operations’’. Catherine Macklam,

Q8Oils UK Sales & Operations Manager

Critically, understanding that a diverse workforce is good for business growth and innovation and driving the need to adapt and transform business practice, is a message that came through loud and clear: collaboration, mentoring and networking are vital to engage and motivate an inclusive ‘team’. Or as Mandy Hickson showed in her presentation: ‘TEAM’ – Together Everyone Achieves More!

“The event provided a platform for successful and inspirational women from all career stages and sectors of the industry to share experiences and advice. I left feeling positive and motivated to enact change in support of gender equality. It was a highly enjoyable and informative day.”

Catherine Caulfield – Argus Media

Key takeaways from the event were the value and importance of: • Building a strong and supportive network • Changing company culture • Leading change from the grassroots • Management to support the changes from the top

• It is the responsibility of everyone to make this happen
