"Leadership is about inspiring people. It’s a work style that helps them figure out ‘where we need to go’ by setting direction and creating vision."

Author, "Supply Chain Management for Dummies"
"The STEM movement encourages more young girls to learn engineering and become engineers. Today, 17 percent of workers in the field of engineering are women vs. 1 percent in 1970. We are making progress."
"To identify risks and resilience strategies, companies need to move beyond their regular supply chain to look at the capacity and speed needed to recover if something really goes wrong."
"We all look at problems differently. And it's really important to have a good, diverse group of folks in the room to provide a different set of ears to address problems--whether they’re from finance, operations, supply chain or warehousing."
