Recognize the growth of women in supply chain, and the potential for even more high-profile roles on this International Women’s Day.
International Women’s Day (IWD) is celebrated around the world on March 8. IWD’s purpose is to commemorate the cultural, political, and socioeconomic achievements of women. The day’s themes spotlight the women’s rights movement, gender equality, reproductive rights, and violence and abuse against women.
Against that backdrop, a Gartner survey says that women now make up 41% of the supply chain workforce. They are taking a greater share of top corporate supply chain roles with retail and consumer goods businesses showing the strongest leadership profiles.
