Women are taking a greater share of top corporate supply-chain roles, with retail and consumer goods businesses showing the strongest leadership pipelines, according to a new report.

Seventeen percent of chief supply-chain officers are now women, an annual Gartner Inc. survey found, up from 11% in 2019 and the highest proportion since the survey’s first edition in 2016. The 2020 Women in Supply Chain Survey,
released Tuesday, gathered data from 177 shippers and supply-chain providers with more than $100 million in revenue.
