Survey Says: 17% of Supply Chain Officers are Women (.PDF Download)

Aug. 26, 2020
The number of women in high-ranking supply chain positions continues to increase, with more companies developing specific goals to enhance gender diversity even further.

While supply chain organizations deal with the impacts of the coronavirus pandemic, many of them are persevering with their gender equality goals, according to Gartner’s “2020 Women in Supply Chain Survey.” Among 177 supply chain professionals, 17% of chief supply chain officers (CSCOs) are now women—a 6% increase compared to 2019 and the highest rate since the first edition of the survey in 2016.

“The increase in women executive leaders over the past year is a positive sign, however the survey showed that women don’t consistently make it through the pipeline,” said Gartner’s Dana Stiffler in a press release.
