Hello everyone and welcome to Blended! This is a brand-new show and it’s going to be a little bit different to what you’ve heard before.
We talk a lot about the challenges facing our industries as a whole – changing technology, network complexity, surprises like COVID-19 – but what we don’t talk as much about is the people. The people that really drive our businesses forward, and specifically, the under-represented.
I’ve been flying the flag for women in supply chain for a few years now, through the podcast and some of my other endeavours, but Blended is going to go much further than that. Because it’s not just women who are under represented in Business – we need to be thinking about Everybody! the LGBTQ+ community, people of colour, those with disabilities and so many more, whether they’re visible or hidden.
To me the word inclusive means that we need to join together, to support each other, to be each other’s allies, to ensure we ALL have a seat at the table to make our daily lives the absolute best it can be. How can we do that without leaning in, understanding and communication? This show will change all of that...
