 It is my time to Lift Up diverse talents and share what I have experienced in different roles and countries, always in Supply Chain.

Lead Network is great, passionate place where we can connect, educate, and leverage the power of female talents and male allies across different companies, functions, countries and generations.

I am excited to team up with Lead Network and contribute to carrier building of female talents in supply chain and also to take male allies along.

I love the opportunities the LEAD network offers to collaborate with teams of different but like-minded people across Europe. We’re all committed to advancing diversity and we have a real passion for Supply Chain! As the Head of Supply Chain for a fast growing challenger brand I find it really energising and valuable to connect with the different members of the Supply chain chapter and understand the breadth of our industries better. As a chapter  I particularly enjoy seeing our ideas coming to life, as we provoke discussion and action on inclusion in Supply Chain and FMCG.

I am passionate about bringing equality and fairness. LEAD Network is where passion and real interest bring people together to make a change, to influence and bring what means to them and spread it. I would like to bring awareness, influence and help people to see supply chain as an exciting, sophisticated profession that you can explore your future career there. To give the opportunities to younger women to come to supply chain and bring different thinking & diversity. I am a true believer that we can, together!

Being part of the Supply Chain Chapter committee is a great opportunity to share best practices, to exchange, collaborate with peers of other industries on supply chain challenges and common topics. I am curious, open-minded, love learning, and connecting with people. LEAD Network is offering me the opportunity to develop all of these!

I have started my career in the male dominated logistics industry and have always lacked (female) role models I could identify myself with. Nevertheless, I never challenged the status quo since it was the norm I was used to. When a colleague wanted to start a women grassroot initiative at Beiersdorf, I realized that us women all experience the same but it is usually not spoken about. Since then, I am a CoreTeam member of our grassroots  initiative #SisterhoodisPower from the very beginning. Success needs different perspectives and different perspectives only come with diversity. I have found my passion in women empowerment which I want to leverage with my contribution to LEAD. Further, I believe in the power of networking. It is truly amazing to see what’s possible when the right people come together.

I am a true believer of equal opportunities for men and women in all areas of life. Through LEAD Network, I was able to be part of the action where as volunteers together in Chapters we had a chance to showcase role models, bring diversity and inclusion to life, supporting women in supply chain and beyond. In a functional area like supply chain where success lies in achieving balance, seeing more and more young women professionals is my passion and goal going forward.

Having spent a year volunteering in a small village in Tanzania after my high school degree, I learned how many unconscious biases can hinder us from achieving our full potential. With this experience, I became convinced that we should remove barriers and foster diversity to become the best performing teams possible. In my opinion, creating an inclusive environment is particularly important in such an international, but male-dominated environment such as supply chain. Being a member of the grassroots initiative #SisterhoodisPower, aiming to empower women, partnering with LEAD Network is such a great opportunity to carry this mission further. 

I am excited to take part in this journey and connect, educate, and strengthen diversity and inclusion in supply chain.

Equality, fairness and respect should be status quo everywhere. Unfortunately they are not. During my working life as an engineer and watchmaker in Supply Chain I felt supported and pushed to reach my ambitions. I want all people to get the same possibilities and feelings no matter which gender, ethnic group or so called ability a human being has. Luckily there are a lot of engaged leaders in LEAD Network with whom I can learn how to open up for change. I take this as my responsibility. It is why I am a volunteer at LEAD Network especially in Supply Chain Chapter.

We are stronger together. Together to me doesn’t mean a bigger number of the same people, but a huge variety of ideas, experiences, personalities, thoughts & cultures. We can get only get better, or stronger, if we actually use our differences and if we ensure people can express themselves. I’m very excited to be part of the LEAD Network in the Supply Chain Chapter and contribute to a diverse & inclusive workplace in the Supply Chain Industry.

I enjoy teaming up with people who bring different experiences, skills and perspectives. To create inclusive environments where all of us can thrive, it is essential that we keep the conversation going and support each other to take concrete actions. LEAD Network is a fantastic network that facilitates precisely that, with lots of opportunities to connect, share ideas and learn. Being surrounded by so many dedicated and enthusiastic people is truly energizing!

Throughout my career I have taken multiple roles in FMCG Supply Chain and I’ve always been passionate about Change. I’ve enjoyed all elements from envisioning, to building-alliances, to implementation. I’ve taken various roles on i.a. Supply Chain Network optimization, Digitalization, Capital Project Management and Sustainable Packaging.

I’m convinced that change is the only constant in our lives and we are challenged to make it change for the better. As a father of two boys and a girl, I’m confident we all do better when we stick together and have the courage to challenge our own biases and assumptions. I believe we must look beyond individuals, men or women, to make change stick and will have to build a new shared narrative on how we want to world to work. In joining the LEAD Network I want to learn and contribute to diversity & inclusion in Supply Chains.
