A couple of times per year, generally in the Spring and Fall, Women in Logistics sponsors a networking / membership event with a guest speaker. We aim to keep these events interesting by bringing in speakers to present ideas, discuss current events, or share relevant experiences. Some past topics include ILWU labor negotiations, the Port of Oakland plans for development and clean air,a UC Berkeley economist on the financial collapse, a “speed climber’s” view of logistics, the current state of the transportation network, etc. In addition to thought-provoking speakers, these events provide an opportunity for industry professionals to network, gather and share knowledge. In addition, they are also serve as important fundraisers for WIL’s scholarship program.
