Industrial journalist, TR Cutler recently authored an article discussing diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) in the supply chain sectors. He highlighted, as an example of DEI expansion, Kate Yanshyna, an IT project manager for OroCommerce, who was interviewed on the Women and Manufacturing (WAM) podcast, a Jacket Media Co production. The article is featured in the August issue of Manufacturing Outlook.
Yanshyna noted the progression of opportunities for women in IT, “I joined IT ten years ago and over these ten years, I can totally say that there were a lot of changes, a lot of good changes in this sphere. When I first started in this industry, mostly men dominated industry, it was possible for people to ask about your age, about your plans for kids. I’m lucky to witness the change over the years, we are moving towards skills over gender.
Cutler reported on Gartner’s Supply Chain Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Survey, “More than 75% of supply chain organizations consider gender and ethnicity/race in their DEI strategies and objectives. This is a significantly higher rate than in 2020, when 59% of respondents considered gender, and 62% considered ethnicity/race. However, while three-quarters of supply chain organizations report that they focus on some dimension of diversity, only 40% are working on specific DEI projects or initiatives.”
