WISC and Wine

February 10th, 2021 @ 5:30 pm - 7:30 pm MDT

Tech, Tests, and Triumphs

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.

WISC and Wine is an evening event, with engaging conversation on topics relevant to Supply Chain, followed with Q&A, conversation, and networking in a casual and relaxed environment. This is an opportunity to meet new people, reconnect with others, and initiate engaging conversations.

Through Sales Success to the Success of an Innovative Start-up – an Unplanned Journey to Supply Chain

At the beginning as we create our career path, or educational path, does not guarantee what, or where, we will find ourselves creating success. Navigating opportunity requires taking personal and professional risks. Being aware and open to learn from and ask for assistance from those who have navigated risks before you; then, with support and determination, taking on individual risk in a new and innovative opportunity.

Agribusiness is evolving. Though the Pandemic forced us to pay attention to food security, many agribusinesses were already looking at their supply chain and sustainability. Shortening the chain and their carbon footprint. Canada has always been a leader in innovation and the agribusiness has been at the forefront – we just were not aware.

Rindi will share what took her to Sysco, drove her success, what moved her to leave Sysco to join Star Produce and take on new roles, responsibilities, and risks. From sales to innovation in supply chain.

This session will cover:

  • Innovation in Agribusiness
    • creating significant changes in where our foods come from
    • finding and creating technology for the Canadian market – then beyond
    • lessons learned
  • How and when to take personal and professional risks without the formal education or previous experience
  • What is next for the agribusiness

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.”
