Webinar: Finding the way for women in the supply chain industry

17 October 2018
12:30pm - 1:30pm AEDT

Online

Australia’s supply chain industry is currently experiencing a rapid period of change, with huge technological advances, increasing automation and globalisation of trade.

Event details

A new initiative is tackling gender inequities in the supply chain industry, and misconceptions about the industry’s role. Australia’s multi-billion dollar supply chain industry must close its gender gap and attract fresh talent if it wants to grow to meet an increasingly automated future.

In this webinar, Dr Hermione Parsons, Industry Professor and Director of the Centre for Supply Chain and Logistics at Deakin University will explore the current supply chain and logistics industry in Australia, and discuss the new initiative ‘Wayfinder: Supply Chain Careers for Women’ to increase awareness about the demand for women in this industry.
