Supply chain organizations are transforming as Baby Boomers start planning for retirement with the next generation entering the workforce. How can you entice top supply chain talent to your organization? Where is the next generation of talent coming from? What groups make up this next generation? What are they learning? How are others accessing them?

• Understanding the top institutions, curriculums and degrees available
• How to partner with academic institutions to bolster your talent pipeline
• Knowing which skills you should be looking for when ideal past skillsets may no longer be relevant
