The panel, titled “Experienced workforce and younger generations – are their aspirations that different?” takes place February 5 and brings together four panelists to discuss the pulp and paper workforce:

  • Kathy Buckman Gibson, CEO and president of KBG Technologies and board member of Buckman;
  • Kevin Lyrette, strategic HR manager at Kruger Inc.;
