Also a wonderful conversation about women and supply chain positions. I would like to know that as you track the percentage of women in supply chain positions including leadership, how is that a representation of the number of women that are qualified? in other words, what is the ratio of women to men that are qualified for these roles, versus the the ratio of women to men who hold these rolls?

the conversation around forced labor was great. it was very difficult to follow the conversation, because Jessica was consistently using a filler word "um" . After Jessica started using it with great frequency so did Mike and Scott. Those feeling words detracted from the conversation and drew the focus on figuring out how many times does filler words were being used.
