Description

This episode spotlights Empowering Women in Logistics. Four remarkable women making waves in the logistics industry—Ashley Ritteman, Meghan Marsden, Kristy Knichel, and Bonnie Michael—join us to discuss their motivations for choosing logistics careers, the importance of diversity, steps for creating inclusive environments, and the role mentorship played in each guest’s career growth.

Key Takeaways
  • Empowerment Through Support: In large organizations, you don’t ascend to higher levels without someone helping or advocating for you. So, when you are in a position of authority, offer growth opportunities to individuals who exhibit excellence. 
  • Qualities of Great Female Leaders: The discussion reveals key attributes such as resilience, adaptability, strategic thinking, and empathy that contribute to successful female leadership in logistics.
  • The importance of Diversity: Diversity of thought, both inside and outside the industry, drives unique solutions because each team member has unique vantage points. 
  • Mentorship and Career Growth: Mentors help you see potential in yourself that you might not see. Pointing out the good (and the bad) in a safe environment will provide guidance, learning opportunities, confidence-building, career guidance, feedback, and emotional support.
  • Emotional Intelligence and Interpersonal Skills: The most influential leaders have high emotional intelligence and master the delicate balance between warmth and competency to win their team’s confidence.
