Kenya Women in Logistics, Transport and Supply Chain Dinner

ABOUT THE CONFERENCE

Logistics, Transport & Supply Chain permeates every industry and business sector in the world; retail, life sciences, fashion, technology, construction, manufacturing, hospitality, health, transport and so on.

This means that in addition to needing drivers and warehouse operatives, there’s also a requirement for business development and customer-facing personnel with expertise in the industries in which customers operate.

The industry needs a more diverse workforce, but it suffers from poor perceptions about career opportunities, which has led to a debate around skills gaps and a lack of gender diversity. Nearly 1m people work in logistics, transport & supply chain sector in Kenya. But less than a quarter of these employees are female, according to the World Bank Data. Kenya Women in Logistics, Transport & Supply Chain is going to be launched officially by Logistics Board (LoB) this year 2022, 8th March as the whole world will be celebrating International Women Day.

Our Aim

Our main aim is to promote the status of women in Logistics, Transport and supply chain to bring together those who aid the career development of women, and to provide a support network for women in the sector. We have a vision of being the most sought after organization for advocacy and empowerment of women in the Logistics and Transport industry. Our work towards this goal is concentrated into four key areas: Leadership, Mentorship, Entrepreneurship and Empowerment. Within these areas we work to bring change to our industry and the wider economy.
