(Tempe, AZ)One of the National Association of Purchasing Management’s strategic goals is to increase the number of minorities and women in the supply management field. "A key way to do that," explains Christina Foster, SPHR, NAPM’s vice president of diversity, "is to develop an ongoing relationship with historically based minority colleges and universities."
On Friday, February 16, 2001, in Tempe, Arizona educators from Tennessee State, Howard University, Florida A&M University, Prairie View University, Langston University, Clark Atlanta, and Tuskegee University will join leaders from NAPM, Deere & Co., and IBM to discuss how a supply management program can and will benefit their school and students.
Dr. Joe Cavinato, C.P.M., NAPM senior vice president, and visionary in the supply management field, will discuss insights into the supply management profession; give an overview of the past, present, and future of the supply manager; and highlight recruitment opportunities and value-add of the profession within business today.
There will be an in-depth discussion focusing on the development of required curriculum and available resources. University leaders who have already adopted such a program, like Howard University’s Supply Management Excellence Center and Clark Atlanta University’s Executive MBA program, will be able to share their expertise and experiences as well.
