The shortage of supply chain talent continues to pose a challenge for both the private and public sector. To help solve this problem, the Council of Supply Chain Management Professionals (CSCMP) has launched its new Center for the Advancement in Talent & Training (CATT), formerly known as the Talent Center, with a goal to raise $5 million in donations by 2025.
CATT’s mission is to bridge the talent gap by providing high school students with supply chain educational programs and professional development opportunities. Whether students plan to start a career immediately after high school or attend college or university, this initiative hopes to develop future supply chain talent, especially within underserved communities.
For this “Training-to-Jobs” (T2J) initiative to succeed, CSCMP needs partners to help it reach as many students as possible. For those individuals and organizations interested in being a part of this initiative, CATT offers various contributor levels:
The Center is also offering a naming opportunity to its sponsors. Pricing is negotiable for a multi-year CATT naming experience. This opportunity includes all of the membership benefits noted above, additional levels of engagement and support within the CSCMP, lead participation in any of CSCMP’s “State of” opportunities, CEO/senior-level leadership speaking engagements within the annual EDGE conference, and more.Interested in learning more about CATT or in donating to the initiative?
