3 December 13:00 - 16:00Ingvar Kamprad Designcentrum (IKDC)

Academia and industry need to work together to bring sustainable innovations to the packaging industry and, thus, to consumers and society. Women play a significant role in packaging innovation by coming up with new ideas and transforming them into business opportunities, thanks to their technical competences, networking skills and creative attitude. 

Come to the 2020’s first Fempack event that will provide insights into the opportunities for collaboration between academia and industry and how to empower women to work in the fascinating field of packaging innovation. The event is hosted by the Department of Design Sciences, Division of Packaging Logistics, with a mixture of speakers from the academic world and the packaging industry sharing their perspectives on the future of packaging. 

Meet Fempack, start networking and shape the future of packaging!


About fempack

We launched Fempack by Packbridge, a network for professional women in the packaging value chain, on December 14, 2016. It happened straight after our major annual Conference the Top Packaging Summit by Packbridge, where a bottom-up initiate evolved – WE NEED MORE WOMEN in the industry! As it was a missing part of our platform, our response was fast – we started a network for women in order to bridge the gap.

Una Tellhed
Senior lecturer, Department of Psychology @ Lund University

Why do so few girls choose a career path in tech?

Una will present results from a study that tested psychological explanations of gender differences in educational choice. Data was collected from 2500 randomly selected Swedish school pupils and for this lecture she will focus on the results concerning the scarcity of girls in tech-heavy educations, like engineering. The study found that the main explanation of this gender segregation lies in young women doubting their competence for this domain. Also contributing to the explanation was women’s lower expectations of fitting in socially in tech career paths.

Una Tellhed

Una Tellhed is a Senior Lecturer at the Department of Psychology at Lund University in Sweden. Her dissertation from 2008 regarded gender-related stereotype threat. She is currently the leader of a research group in Lund who specializes in testing social psychological explanations of the horizontal gender segregation in the labor market, which includes the gender-skewed STEM-sector. As a side project she is also involved in research which tests psychological and physiological health effects of yoga.
