2017 Diversity Award
The Pathway Scholars Program was created by The Ohio State University Fisher Collage of Business Management Sciences Department to offer an experiential engagement program to introduce female undergraduates to supply chain careers earlier in their college experience and provide them with opportunities to engage with industry executives in a mentoring capacity. Pathways corporate sponsor, Wendy’s Quality Supply Chain Co-Op was selected as one of 2017's Diversity Award Corporate winners.
Supply chain management has risen to prominence as a critical foundation for success for companies worldwide over the past two decades and there has been a corresponding growth in jobs, careers and influence for supply chain professionals. At the same time, there is a critical shortage of women in top leadership roles. The lack of gender diversity is hampering the ability of companies to attract and keep strong talent to advance their causes.
