Did you know that in the transportation, logistics, and infrastructure industry, women are hired 40% of the time for entry-level positions - but only 16% for management, VP, and C-suite roles? Diversity in the supply chain industry is changing - but not quickly enough. Luckily, leaders like SAP's Darcy MacClaren and Jenny Patzlaff of the University of Wisconsin E-business Consortium have key insights that can help us accelerate inclusivity and maximize innovation. In this episode, host Scott Luton sits down with Darcy and Jenny to hear more about their career trajectories and to get their perspectives on how to bring more women into the industry and support them throughout successful careers. Tune in to learn more about unconscious bias, the difference between mentorship and sponsorship, what men can do to support a more gender-inclusive workplace, common supply chain misconceptions, and more.
