Redwood will lead a discussion exploring ways the industry can attract and retain women, how women can unearth career-accelerating opportunities and insights into how women can thrive long-term within an ever-changing global supply chain.

Our esteemed panel of supply chain professionals know the ins-and-outs of this field and their knowledge will be invaluable for women at every stage of their logistics careers.”
