Date: May 27,2021
Time: 3 PM Central
The CSCMP roundtables of Chicago, Cincinnati, Kansas City and the Twin Cities invite you to join us for an important conversation about Diversity, Equity and Inclusion in the supply chain industry.
A recent Supply Chain Management Review survey of 298 supply chain professionals found that 59% of surveyed organizations reported having some form of objective to improve any dimension of DEI – race/ethnicity, gender, LGBTQIA+, physical and cognitive ability, veteran status or age – but only 23% of those organizations listed having formal targets or goals included in management scorecards.
Our expert panel will share their strategies and successes building and working with diverse teams. They will also discuss actionable steps for developing, implementing and evolving a sustainable DEI strategy, and highlight the positive impact a sound DEI strategy can have on corporate culture, business success, and the bottom line.
Whether your organization is in its infancy with a DEI strategy or a model for the industry, we hope you’ll lean into this discussion that will leave you with tangible takeaways to push your organization to the next level.
