More than 200 female managers and leaders in logistics gathered to discuss leadership and the future of the industry at Poland’s largest women in logistics event.
CEVA Logistics partnered with this year’s Women in Logistics Forum, the largest platform for women managers and leaders in the Polish logistics sector.
The community of the Forum gathers more than 800 women leaders who represent multinational and national 3PL providers, in-house logistics departments and service providers for industry and trading companies. This unique women’s business platform enables women to exchange knowledge and experiences, support each other and be part of a public debate touching on the most important issues in the Polish business market.
This year’s Forum meeting was held in Warsaw where nearly 220 women leaders gathered to discuss their perspectives on today’s logistics and best practices of women in leadership in logistics under the event theme, Excellence Together.
CEVA Logistics Air Product Head, Northeast and Southeast Europe, Ewa Wlodarczyk, shared her expert insights at the event in Warsaw.
“Supply chains are huge, complex and dynamic environments where cooperation and communication are crucial aspects,” she said.
“Women intuitively have these skills and thrive in this kind of environment. Most women in leadership roles see their key challenge and opportunity in building an organisational culture based on excellent cooperation.
“In today’s business world, women must join forces to develop new competencies and share our achievements. Continuous development will play a more important role in leadership than ever before. I define leadership as resilience to pressure, boldness to pursue the impossible and the ability to solve complex problems.”
