Women are increasing entering operations and supply chain management (SC/OM). Yet the pace of advancement of promising women into leadership roles is too slow. This session develops multiple paradigms of the challenges and opportunities for the SC/OM field to bring gender equality into its upper echelons—Full Professor rank, Endowed Chair, Professional Society Fellows, Sr. Editorial Leadership, etc.–by 2025. Senior female and male academic scholars will discuss the issues and strategies for changing the dynamics. We will conclude with a challenging agenda that has the potential to make the 2025 goal a reality.
