CSCMP 2017 EDGE Supply Chain Academic Research Symposium, September 24, Atlanta, Georgia

Brunch and Closing Session: Be the Change Sponsored by Clear Metal

On the final day of the conference, sit down for a delicious brunch! Major Mary Jennings “MJ” Hegar is a hero twice over—As a pilot, she was awarded both the Purple Heart and the Distinguished Flying Cross with Valor Device for saving her team from Taliban capture after their Medevac helicopter was shot down, and as the soldier who challenged the Combat Exclusion Policy—which prevented women from entering direct combat—winning women the right to serve on the front lines for the first time. Hegar also recently authored, Shoot Like a Girl, a soon-to-be major motion picture. Combining harrowing war stories and practical advice on leadership, diversity, teamwork, and motivation, she will reveal how to be a catalyst for change on a large scale, be it in your career, at home, or on a national or global level. When someone tells you that something cannot be done, she says, the only way to prove them wrong is to do what they believe be impossible.
