Women in the Supply Chain; A Discussion [eBook]
Between 70% and 80% of positions within the supply chain industry are held by men and 95% of top level supply chain positions within Fortune 500 companies are held by men.
The lack of gender diversity is bad for business. Recent research by McKinsey & Company found that companies in the top quartile for gender diversity are 15% more likely to have financial returns above their respective national industry medians. Moreover, Arrow Electronics’ Cathy Morris points put that “diversity enables better decision-making and diminishes group think.”
At Fronetics we believe it is important to discuss the supply chain gender gap, and to work towards closing the gap. We have created an eBook which is inclusive of interviews with:
- Mickey North Rizza, VP, Strategic Services at BravoSolution.
- Cathy Morris, senior vice president and chief strategy officer for Arrow Electronics, Inc.
- Don Firth, founder and CEO of several niche job boards
