Creating and Implementing Policy Changes Across Supply Chains

July 11

Supply chain is often part of the solution to global challenges. But managing supply chain policies and practices is an ever-evolving exercise. And knowing what changes to make and when can be difficult.

At our July 11 Inclusion in Supply Chain Training and Networking event, four women leaders will share their experiences implementing policy changes at their workplaces. Their stories will highlight policies that facilitate access and inclusion of underrepresented groups, including women, those with disabilities and compelled laborers.

The presenters will provide insights into their professional journeys spanning the higher education, entrepreneurial, government and agribusiness sectors. A representative from the Mastercard Foundation also will speak about Mastercard’s persons-with-disability policy at Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology.

The objectives of the event are threefold:

  • providing insight on how policy changes are implemented on multiple levels;
  • showcasing successful stories of women and underrepresented groups leading in supply chain initiatives, and
  • creating a platform for like-minded individuals to connect, collaborate and exchange ideas.
