Long Beach, CA - Ship & Shore Environmental, Inc., a leading U.S. environmental firm that specializes in air pollution capture and control systems for industrial manufacturing companies, announced today that its President & CEO, Anoosheh Oskouian will be a featured speaker at the Annual Women Breaking the Mold (WBM) conference on October 22-23 in Chicago, IL. The WBM Network is an empowering community dedicated to the professional development of female executives in the plastics industry.
At the event, Oskouian will speak about her journey to becoming the only female CEO of a U.S pollution abatement firm, her background story of immigrating to the United States at the young age of 14, and her two decades of experience in industrial and commercial project construction; which during her impressive career, has made her a master on air pollution abatement, waste heat recovery, energy consumption reduction and fabrication of integrated green solutions.
This event will bring together the female executives in the plastics industry to network, learn, and grow. The STEM fields - science, technology, engineering and mathematics - are one of the most in-demand fields in the professional world. Yet, these industries are still male-dominated and non-inclusive to talented, intelligent women passionate about these subjects. Oskouian's story will add to the conversation of successful women in a sector of the STEM industry by providing specifics on her in-depth process knowledge and expertise and tap into her entrepreneurial instinct.
Other speakers alongside Oskouian include Donna Davis, the 2018 inductee to Plastics Hall of Fame, Senior Market Research Associate at ExxonMobil Corp, and Lindsey Berckman, Senior Manager at Deloitte Consulting LLP.
"Ship & Shore supports women pursuing STEM careers and all female entrepreneurs who have the desire to enter these fields. At Ship & Shore, we want to raise the participation of women in this industry, and we have the tools and enthusiasm to do so. As an Iranian woman in a male-dominated industry, my current success was stacked against me from the beginning. My success will be worthwhile if I can positively effect women's roles in STEM fields through Ship & Shore," said Oskouian.
Ship & Shore has traditionally facilitated safe and responsible manufacturing of plastics, coatings, fasteners and other industries. The environmental company has recently grown its involvement in the plastics industry by helping manufacturers with energy efficiency programs.
