Panel Discussion: Towards Diversity and Inclusion in Supply Chain Management
Date & Time
Tuesday, October 20, 2020, 6:00 PM - 6:40 PM
Tonya Jackson Kulwant Sandhu Antoinette Irvine Bjoern Kirchner M. Dave Malenfant

Companies are changing business models, adjusting supply chains and reworking their portfolios to improve value. They are waking up to the fact that all the above can be achieved through a more diverse and inclusive workforce. Diversity is not viewed as a quick fix to stabilize industry-wide disruption, but critical to the survival of the sector. Without diversity, companies will continue to miss out on innovation and insight to capitalize on future opportunities and the drivers of growth. This discussion will explore how to create and invest in a diverse talent pipeline across all levels.

  • Best practice approaches towards promoting supply chain diversity and inclusion – what can we learn from other industries?
  • The responsibility of the sector in attracting, developing and retaining a diverse talent pool – from the bottom to the top
  • Engaging internal and external stakeholders to shape talent management and leadership development strategies
  • Identifying high potential minority candidates and defining strategies to accelerate their development
