Supply Chain STEM: About the Program
Our goal at APICS is to reach more than 100,000 students by 2020 through the Supply Chain STEM Educational Outreach Program. Your help is needed to meet our goal.
By 2025, 60 million baby boomers will exit the workforce, leaving a gigantic gap in talent, with only 40 million millennials ready to take their place. Along with this loss of highly skilled individuals, trends of training budget cuts and accelerating technology development are creating a concerning outlook for the future of supply chain talent. APICS is committed to decreasing the global supply chain talent gap.
Help us solve the problem! With the help and support of organizations and volunteers like you, we can overcome the future supply chain talent shortage through the Supply Chain STEM Educational Outreach Program. This program is designed for K-12 students to demonstrate the importance of supply chain management and the promising career paths available to them.
