There are many opportunities and challenges for procurement and supply chain professionals as the function evolves and transforms from a service to a core strategic function. The leadership and influence of CPOs and their teams within the enterprise has grown rapidly along with the increasing complexity of the procurement function. Their elevated role has brought heightened expectations for procurement teams to deliver across a broader range of capabilities that enhance business efficiency and fuel enterprise innovation.

Women in Procurement 2015, supported by the SCLAA and being held from 27-29 May in Melbourne, will see CPOs, heads of procurement and senior procurement and supply chain managers from across industry sectors sharing their experience and learnings on the attributes and skills that will advance careers, inspire leadership and drive innovation in procurement practice and function.
