Covestro Australia’s Managing Director, Rebecca Lee was the speaker at the inaugural “Women in Coatings” breakfast for the Surface Coatings Association of Australia, held in conjunction with their annual Conference in Melbourne on Friday. It was a fitting event following Covestro’s 1st Birthday on September 1, a new name backed by a respected history of supplying raw materials for the coatings industry.
Rebecca shared her career journey and wisdom with the audience, attended by over 30 women from the Surface Coatings industry. “The vibe in the room was electric, really supportive. It was great that other women shared their own experiences and we were able to openly discuss diversity and flexibility in the work force. I was excited to be part of the first breakfast and look forward to it becoming an annual event so we can continue the discussion and put into action”, says Rebecca.
