How will it work?

We’ve packaged the steps to help supply chain innovators embed equitable practices in their operations. Over four weeks, you will learn the basics of developing a Gender Equity Strategy and top-line implementation plan, complete your own assignments, and receive input and feedback from PGE’s Experts along the way. You should expect to spend at least three hours per week working on your strategy and plan. Most of this work can be done on your own schedule.
