Retail has traditionally been an industry in which women can flourish, however within its supply chain, operations and logistics sectors there have been some barriers to break down – this journey will be discussed in full by an expert panel on 12 October 2023 at DeliveryX World.
The session will dissect personal experiences, challenges, triumphs and perspectives on leadership, career growth, diversity, inclusion, and the opportunities needed for women to become accomplished in the field.
Over 40 minutes, Caroline Whitley, fulfilment director at Matches; Emma Newton, senior director – ecommerce last mile for Asda; and Ellen Harkin-Goodbourn, global ecommerce operations manager of Lego, will provide their insight.
Ahead of this packed session, held in London’s Bishopgate, Whitley sat down with DeliveryX to share her experiences – read the full interview here.
