Penn State Executive Programs, the executive education provider within Smeal, is sponsoring this workshop-style event that provides an avenue for women to share stories and identify strategies that can be used to champion issues, motivate others in the organizations, and implement change, particularly when various stakeholders may be resistant or challenging credibility.

The panelists will include: 

  • Jacqueline Bailey, supply and demand executive, Cargill, Inc.
  • Karen Folino, senior commercial leader – optimization solutions, GE Transportation
  • Christine Kringer, director, Protection of National Assets Outreach Program, National Security Division, U.S. Department of Justice
  • Michelle Meyer, director of advisory services, PwC
  • Remko van Hoek, former senior vice president of sourcing and procurement, Walt Disney Company

Supply chain professionals from around the world annually attend CSCMP, which is widely considered to be a premier supply chain event. 

Joshi is a prolific and award-winning researcher in the areas of diversity, gender issues at work, leadership and collaboration in global teams, generational issues in the workplace, and international and cross-cultural management issues.
