Dinner by Demand

January 21st, 2021 @ 5:00 pm - 6:30 pm MST

$25
Tech, Tests, and Triumphs - 2021
Tech, Tests, and Triumphs - 2021

How Tech helped or hindered 2020, what we need to prepare for in 2021 and forward, why it is critical we all embrace technology

The life and career Tests that came from 2020, how we will take these lessons into 2021, and what changes we will make as a result.

Our Triumphs from 2021 and how they will make 2021 more successful, how they defined our careers and the industry, how we must cheer on women in all their successes.

We want to address how women and marginalized communities, especially due to COVID-19, face unreasonable barriers and obstacles – how many leaders have taken steps and created initiatives that push to over come these challenges and how we must all work together to encourage and support our peers for success in Supply Chain and for Supply Chain.

Introduce WISC Association supporters who have made an impact, how they can share their story to encourage others, what needs to change, what is being done, and what still needs to be done.

Purpose

Dinner by Demand is a late afternoon, early evening event, (depending on our presenters’ home base), where we invite you join us virtually, as you enjoy your dinner, or meal of choice in the relaxation of your home – or where you can participate. Dinner by Demand is an educational and inspirational evening with an opportunity to learn from leading professionals in their field, from current and trending topics in supply chain, followed by Q&A and conversation with our guest.

Pandemics, Tradewars, and Disruption: Why Now is the Greatest Time to Be a Supply Chain Professional

Here we stand battered and bruised from 2020, a year punctuated by one crisis followed by another disaster, followed by another crisis, followed by another disaster, over and over and over again. We start 2021 mentally, physically, and emotionally punished. And yet, there has never been a greater time to be a supply chain professional. Spurred by massive investment, innovation, and strategic imperatives, the supply chain function is rapidly becoming the coolest place in the organization. We are no longer a back office cost center afterthought. We are the critical enablers of enterprise success and customer satisfaction. In short, the next generation, digitally enabled supply chain has arrived.

This session will cover:

  • What does the next generation supply chain look like (and where you can already see it)?
  • How to take part of the journey?
  • What are the watchouts and pitfalls?

The WISC Association has and remains focused on support, development, and collaboration of women for women in supply chain. Our message, since COVID-19 became global, has been to recognize how women have been disproportionately impacted. We are excited that our focus and commitment resonates this year with the UN Women theme for International Women's Day, 8 March 2021 (#IWD2021) of: "Women in leadership: Achieving an equal future in a COVID-19 world."
