Covestro Australia’s Managing Director Rebecca Lee has been recently profiled in a University of Melbourne Alumni showcase aimed at outlining the career opportunities for women in science. Rebecca, who is a science graduate of the University of Melbourne, spoke openly about the skills-based applications of chemistry both inside and outside of the chemistry lab.
Speaking alongside a fellow School of Chemistry graduate Jane Wayland, Rebecca emphasised the importance of applying lab-based knowledge into industry.
“One of the key things that my science degree has helped me with is skills based. The things that you did in a chemistry prac really put you in good stead for things like analysing marketing data, understanding trends, looking at what’s happening in the industry and finding those next opportunities” she said.
