Women in Logistics
Breaking Gender Roles to Win the War for Talent
According to the findings of Logistics Management’s 2017 Salary Survey, the vital role women play in the logistics management community continues to gain traction every year.
In this webcast, originally aired in June, executive editor Patrick Burnson shares recent findings and joined by a panel of women who are now leading top-level logistics and supply chain operations.
The panel shares their success stories as well as advice for women who are now making their way up the ladder. Most importantly, though, they inform our audience not to overlook this important segment of the workforce when they are hiring for the future.
