February 1st, 2021 @ 7:30 am - 8:30 am MDTFree
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.
Held the first Monday morning of each month. A motivational topic will be set each month that gives the participants something to work towards. The morning will consist of having coffee conversations around how the previous month went, and how we see the coming month going. This event is an opportunity to share successes, challenges, and support.
Reinvention and resetting have been ongoing themes in Dr. Wilma Slenders’ life. She’s been celebrated, fired, started companies, and shuttered them, worked massively long hours in a global consulting firm, and lived through extended periods of no work. Yet, she is still positive about the future!
Dr. Wilma credits a number of attitudes and practices to keep her on the plus side of optimism.
Join us for a conversation about staying positive in uncertain times and the things that you need to know to ensure that you show up as your best self.

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.”
