The medical instruments are held by medical supply companies and arrive only a couple of days before the surgery takes place.

SUPPLY CHAIN AND LOGISTICS ASSOCIATION OF AUSTRALIA (SCLAA)
“Driving the Competitive Advantage in Supply Chain and Logistics”
Proudly Supports International Women’s Day
Wednesday, 8 March 2017
You may be surprised that women only make up 21.9% of the population involved within the Supply Chain and Logistics industries. That is why the SCLAA are proud to support and encourage International Women’s Day on Wednesday 8th March 2017. It is imperative we attract more women to the industry. Whether these women are involved at CEO, Senior Management Level; work in a warehouse or drive trucks the Supply Chain and Logistics Association would like to acknowledge their incredible contribution.
International Women’s Day is a time to reflect on the progress made, to call for change and to celebrate acts of courage and determination by ordinary women who have played an extraordinary role in the history of their countries and communities.
Amanda O’Brien, the recently appointed first SCLAA Chairwomen in 56 years said “International Women’s Day is a perfect opportunity for everyone to help drive better outcomes and change for women, not only those involved in the Supply Chain and Logistics areas but for all women involved in business and the community. Our National Association encourages everyone to support this day”.
Amanda went on to say “that in 2014 only 9.2% of Chief Executive Officers in transport, postal and warehousing industry were women. Participation has decreased by 1.1% in this sector over the last ten years and this attrition rate is disturbing”.
“The inequality in gender dispersion is an immediate barrier to entry. In government and industry circles we need to first of all acknowledge openly that this issue exists and secondly offer the same opportunities to acquire skills and experience in this sector as those offered in more traditional roles”.
This year’s campaign theme is Be Bold For Change – #BeBoldForChange
To further acknowledge women in business, the SCLAA will be holding back by popular demand the successful Women in Logistics Lunch in the Member’s Dining room at the Melbourne Cricket Ground on Friday 19th May. Don’t miss out on this unique event! All men are encouraged to attend to show your support for the dynamic changes in industry. For further details, please call the SCLAA office on 1300 364 160 or visit www.sclaa.com.au to book online.
