In today’s episode Sarah talks to Lori, a senior executive at JDA, Lori has worked in supply chain for 8 years in various different roles and her largest challenge has been keeping up with the very fast development of technology - something she believes is key for future generations to educate themselves on.

Lori manages her team remotely, and focuses on having a healthy work life balance, being able to prioritize effectively and taking on the right risks. Her advice to other women in the industry? Make sure you’re doing something you like doing and make sure to learn about innovation, tech and machine learning. She also emphasizes on the importance of having the right mentors and leaders.

For those who are just getting started in supply chain, Lori says it’s important to know your framework and your passion. Internships are great to try out a career; if you realize that you’re doing something you don’t like, don’t be afraid to move on and try something new. Tech is going to be a core part of supply chain and business in the future, so she believes it’s important to make sure to learn a little bit about innovation, technology and AI!
