NTC sponsors luncheon to attract more young women to the transport industry

The National Transport Commission (NTC) recently sponsored the ‘Strongest Link’ luncheon aimed at educating young women about career opportunities in the supply chain and logistics industry.

NTC Chief Officer Policy, Meena Naidu and Senior Policy Analyst, Jane Cureton represented the NTC at the event, which was attended by female high school students from several schools in the northern and western suburbs of Melbourne.

“The NTC are proud to have been able to sponsor this event and support an initiative to attract more women to consider a career in supply chain or logistics field,” said Meena. “This sector continues to thrive and expand and it is important that young people are aware of the exciting careers available so we can ensure the future prosperity of the industry.”

The luncheon was hosted by Victoria University’s Institute for Supply and Logistics and also attended by those already working in the field in various industries and the government sector. These attendees were able to share their experiences with the students and highlight the career opportunities available.

“The speakers at the event illustrated the diversity of positions available in the supply chain and logistics field – in areas such as defense and fashion,” said Jane. “Women are under-represented in this industry and the luncheon was a great way to demonstrate the exciting opportunities available.”
