Global planning, project management and global supplier management at Cisco. Global supply chain operations at Northdrop Grumman. Founder of Waves of Change, a non-profit focused on driving racial equity through sustainability. You might be picturing a 30-year supply chain veteran at this point, but these credentials are just the beginning of what Rachel Clark is bringing to the profession. A senior at Howard University, Rachel joins us to trace her path from a rural Massachusetts upbringing to leading the Howard University Supply Chain Student Association - and the lessons she's learned along the way. Find out why supply chain is an inherently human industry full of ethical responsibilities and opportunities, what it takes to be an effective leader, how organizations can create more diversity throughout the industry and much more.
