“Women in supply chain and procurement should possess ethics, integrity, respect and strive for the best in the boardroom”, said Lerato Sithole, Consulting Process Solutions, Deloitte BPaaS.

“South Africa is faced with many challenges, unemployment being one of them. I believe that supply chain is the engine to create jobs. As supply chain and procurement professionals we do not understand how critical and strategic we are; professionals in this industry must understand their roles in this space," said Sibongile Shongwe, Group Supply Chain Manger, Airports Company South Africa Ltd (ACSA).

"It is difficult for women to break through into this industry. However, as women we need to stand firm and push forward,” said Shongwe.

I believe that it is not difficult for women to break through into this space; work hard and you will achieve better,” noted Sanet Shepperson, Procurement Executive at Cell C.
