Women in Supply Chain Network (WISC)

WISC brings together women and men who support the professional development of women in the retail supply chain field.

Without gender balance in leadership roles, retailers are missing out on the best solutions and insights.  Research by groups including Carnegie Mellon, MIT, Gartner, and others has shown that companies with a higher proportion of women in board and executive roles have higher valuations, better returns on equity, and higher payout ratios.

RILA is helping retailers address these gaps.  In conjunction with RILA’s Diversity and Inclusion initiative, and via events, resources, and industry partnerships, RILA seeks to provide networking, educational and professional development opportunities for women in the retail supply chain field.
