We are unswervingly focused on serving our beneficiaries: our students; business and the professions; our region, and our society. We are proudly motivated by those we benefit.
"We are delighted to be invited by our friends at 'Talent in Logistics' to be a supporting partner of the Big Logistics Diversity Challenge 2020. I call upon all companies and organisations in supply chain and logistics to get involved and transform our profession. Diversity and inclusion are vital to innovation and supply chain success. There is a great opportunity for all leaders in logistics to promote cultures that welcome challenge and advance inclusion; such cultures are, not least, key to successful recruitment and retention in these crucial professions that propel the national economy and underpin our freedom and security. The Big Logistics Diversity Challenge is a fantastic, fun and engaging way to 'show and grow' EDI credentials - I think everyone should want to be involved. This is bigger than all of us and we all need to step-up and work together for the greater good. Our thanks to friends at 'Talent in Logistics', Nimble Media -the event organisers, and Transaid - the event charity, for leading the way. Aston University - a leader in logistics education and research - is proud to be involved."
