The annual SCLAA Women in Logistics luncheon is an event that challenges thinking, inspires action, encourages diversity and motivates collaborative change.
Over the past three years, this thought-provoking event has hosted successful women from various reaches of the Australian logistics industry. They have told their stories about career trials, tribulations and triumphs.
Join the supply chain and logistics community to hear and share ideas that can be put into practice to encourage diversity in the workplace across the country and highlight the need for men and women to support each other through collaboration.

- Hear secrets from supply chain management leaders on how to improve efficiency, better understand and respond to customer demands, adapt and continue to thrive in a rapidly changing global market environment.
- Learn how cutting edge technologies can be harnessed to improve your supply chain management, rather than becoming under-utilised, confusing and expensive clutter.
