While more women are entering the supply chain profession, few hold C-level positions. Analysis by SCM World shows that just 5% of top supply chain executives in Fortune Global 500 companies are female. If lasting change is to occur, more of these role models are needed to provide rising stars with a template for success, and there needs to be a greater understanding among practitioners of both genders about the barriers that women face. This event is dedicated to identifying those lessons learned by women who have risen to the top of the profession, both in terms of how to run a great supply chain and what the uniquely female perspective brings to career planning.
