In addition to sessions that give senior-level supply chain leaders and emerging leaders the opportunity to connect and interact, the AWESOME May-6-7 Symposium will feature a panel of emerging leaders giving their points of view. “Engagement in Action: Advancing Women Leaders” will be moderated by Virginia (Ginny) Clarke, Senior Partner, Executive Search, Knightsbridge Human Capital Solutions.
Panelists include Jennifer Nix, Sr. Director, DSC Logistics; Andrea Poulopoulos, Sourcing Manager, Danaher Corporation; Marinelba Rosado, Director, Value Stream Management, Johnson & Johnson; and Donna Palumbo, Senior Manager, Sourcing & Procurement, The Walt Disney Company.
Earlier in the day, all emerging leaders who have been recommended by a senior leader to attend the conference will participate in a “Fireside Chat’ with senior leaders and a Buzz session with their peers. The panel discussion will address topics such as steps they can take to advance their careers, opportunities and challenges they face, career goals and steps to achieve them, and ways organizations and senior leaders can support their career development and advancement.
