Women make up 39% of entry-level supply chain positions. But when it comes to leadership in the industry, only 11% are women.

Businesses must actively support women to elevate them to leadership positions. Some powerful ways companies support women include:
Flexible and remote work options
Active work against biases and unconscious microaggressions
