Learn about the dynamic field of sustainable product stewardship, which is taking a consumer product, making it more “sustainable,” and taking it to market (on grocery shelves). A great career choice for women looking to blend science and business, a skill set in high demand. I will describe my education and career journey, give examples of the work to bring safe sustainable products to consumers. Product Stewardship is the business process responsible for the management of regulatory compliant products throughout their life cycle focusing on the health, safety and environmental issues at each phase. Case studies will be given to illustrate specific examples.
