The Women in Supply Chain (WISC) Association, with the input from our Associates and Supporters, will be organizing evening, morning, and weekend events, as well as conferences and unique, out-of-the-box events that give members as many opportunities to connect as possible, while also meeting their various interests and needs.
How Tech helped or hindered us in 2020, what we need to prepare for in 2021 and forward, why it is critical that 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, and why 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 to overcome 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 Women in Supply Chain (WISC) Association Supporters who have made an impact, how they can share their story to encourage others, what needs to change, what is being and still needs to be done.
