Elevating Women in Procurement
As we explored in our inaugural Women in Procurement event in April 2023, women are significantly under-represented in the Procurement profession. There are many reasons for this dynamic, but it is up to us to change the narrative. The world needs more women leaders, period; especially in Procurement. This is an exploration of why some women rise to the top and what we all can do to elevate ourselves and other women in Procurement.

Procurement Intelligence
It is not about 'what we buy' and 'who we buy it from'. In the modern procurement organization, the focus is 'how we buy', 'when we buy', and 'why we buy'. How do you ensure you have the right data, at the right time, when it has the most impact in the procurement organization? Bridging the gap between the procurement and data organizations continues to be difficult. Explore real-world examples of how to build that bridge and what it looks like when done well.
