The Growth of Women’s Participation in the Supply Chain

Women have conquered more and more space in the corporate world. In 2020 they represent 17% of the board while in 2019 they represented only 11%. Below, we’ll talk about women’s participation at the top of the organization chart in the supply chain industry.

 

 

Gartner analysts, in partnership with AWESOME (Achieving Women’s Excellence in Supply Chain Operations, Management and Education), based in the United States and focusing on female participation in supply chains, have been conducting studies regarding the presence of women in this area for some years.

 

These studies showed that, in 2017, of the members of the Council for Supply Chain Management Professionals (CSCMP) 15% were women, but that number dropped slightly over the next two years. And on the positions of vice president and senior directors, it was 28%, but the number also dropped to 21% in 2020.

 

Women in Leadership Positions

Following the research, Gartner offered some recommendations on what steps companies and supply chains can take to get more women to gain leadership positions.

 

One of these recommendations is to outline a plan, with goals that seek female inclusion. Another research has shown that when goals are established and programs are created to achieve them, it is easier to generate results within the company.

 

Additionally, women who want to achieve high positions, such as presidency, board or any other leadership position, must also have a lot of focus and perseverance, given all the challenges that come their way.

 

 

Support for Women-led Companies

WEConnect offers international certification for companies led by women and provides a variety of tools that help these companies to leverage the market.

 

One of the companies that has this support and is certified by WBENC, a certification partner in the United States, is ARGOSUS.

 

Chaired by a woman, the company has been in the supply chain industry for over 15 years and consolidates and manages supply chains of third parties, so these companies can focus on their core business.

 

According to Gartner, “leadership in the supply chain has never been more crucial. We need the best talent available to overcome this crisis and position our organizations for an uncertain future.”
