We’ve seen a significant increase in the number of women employed over the past decade in the distribution industry as well as related industries. A recent survey by Gartner titled ‘Women in the Supply Chain 2021,’ revealed that 41% are women. Of those, 15% are in executive roles. These numbers have grown significantly, which is not surprising to me, judging by my experience dealing with the best and brightest in the distribution industry.
I wanted to feature some of the leading women in distribution in a seminar forum so they can share their stories of what it’s like to be in a traditionally male-dominated industry and how they have succeeded.
Join us on Thursday, July 20, 1:00 pm – 2:00 pm CST, as we hear from Tracie Sponenburg, Chief People Officer at The Granite Group, and Anna DuHamel, Vice President of Sales at Benco Dental, along with our expert moderators Kelly Squizzero from Infor and Jill Voege from Proton.
This session will be a lively discussion on how women play a critical role in the industry’s future and how distributors can attract more women to join their workforce.
In this summit, we will discuss:
- The critical role women play in the Noble Calling of Distribution
- Opportunities for advancement and how to become a leader in the industry
- How to build a strong network and leverage mentors to further your career
- How distributors can attract more top female talent
Don’t miss your chance to sit in on this fantastic session. You can also submit your own questions early and we will address them live. Send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
BONUS: Don’t forget…the first 10 to join the waiting room before the webinar starts will receive a free We Supply America t-shirt!
