Diversity Key to Supply Chain Talent Recruitment
Supply chain talent recruitment continues to be a challenge. African Americans and minorities are an untapped talent pool for the supply chain industry. Nearly all students in Supply Chain Management (SCM) receive an internship and career opportunity. The goal is to expand these opportunities.
