The Wayfinder Ambassador Program. aims to attract more women into a predominantly male industry. Wayfinder ambassadors will share their career journeys at community events, providing a practical understanding of what it is like to work as a woman in supply chain, to inspire others to consider a career in this critical sector.
Wayfinder Ambassadors come from a range of supply chain roles and are passionate about their industry, organisation and occupation. If your organisation/school/community would like to hear from a Wayfinder Ambassador, please register here.
The Transferable Skills – Supply Chain Fundamentals session has been designed to be informative, engaging and interactive. It covers the most important supply chain concepts and presents key ideas that will help you understand what this field is all about.

It takes you through the basic functions and flows of a supply chain, and a discussion of why managing real-life supply chains can be a complex, challenging but crucial task. Additional topics covered include the basic trade-offs in supply chain management, modern ethics considerations, and an overview of the emerging technologies that promise to underpin the supply chains of tomorrow.
An investigation into the under-representation of women in supply chain roles; their perception of supply chain and logistics positions, what attracts them to supply chain and logistics careers and the issues that influence their decisions to remain in the industry or to move on.
