CALGARY, Alta.--The Van Horne Institute said it is pleased to announce the second phase of its very successful 2012 – 2013 Women in Supply Chain initiative with the creation of a Women In Supply Chain ‘Distinguished Speaker Dinner Series’.
The ‘Distinguished Speaker Dinner Series’ "will bring the men and women of the Supply Chain community together so that they might share in the insights, experiences and knowledge of inspiring women who are leaders in their industries and in their supply chain roles. Among other things, women are told to ‘lean in’, ‘take your place at the table’ and ‘ask for what you want’. But what does this advice really mean for individuals and for employers? What do our speakers have to tell us about how they got to where they are now and how they have dealt with the challenges they’ve faced along the way? What do these speakers have to tell us about ‘Finding the Courage?’" said the release.
The Van Horne Institute is honoured to be presenting the following speakers:
May 15, 2014 - Maria Lindenberg, Chief Procurement Officer and Vice President, Chevron Corporation “Finding the Courage to Take It Global”
September 17, 2014 – Janice Davis, Group Vice President, Supply Chain, Shaw Communications
November 19, 2014 – Janet Holder, Executive Vice President, Western Access, Enbridge and Northern Gateway Pipeline Project Lead
January 14, 2015 – Speaker, TBA
