WISC ConferencePlease join us on June 16 – 17, 2016 for a Women in Supply Chain: The Journey Conference.

Each story has a journey. As the Women in Supply Chain (WISC) initiative embarks upon the third phase of its journey, the WISC team has decided to build on our successes and continue to refine what has been a path of discovery.

The WISC ‘Journey Series’ will bring the men and women of the Supply Chain community together so that they might share in the insights, experiences and knowledge of inspiring women who are leaders in their industries and in their supply chain roles.

The Conference will hear from leading women in the field of Supply Chain, Logistics, and Transportation who will provide career advice and lessons from their journey in this field.
