The ASCM Foundation is committed to supporting and advancing diversity and inclusion in supply chain, fostering professional environments that value equality and individual differences, and inspiring people of all profiles and backgrounds to succeed in supply chain careers. ASCM is the recipient of a three-year grant from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation. Through this grant, we are working to build self-reliant supply chain talent, increase educational and economic opportunities for women, and encourage healthier families and communities everywhere.
Supply chain innovation depends on applying the broadest set of perspectives to business challenges. At a time when high-quality talent drives business success, too many companies are missing out on the extraordinary potential of women and minorities to lead their supply chain strategies. The ASCM Foundation aims to help them tap into this vast talent pool in order to create stronger networks and position organizations for sustainable, profitable growth.
