Leading a Bold Path for Sustainable + Transparent Supply Chains with Sandra Macquillan (Mondelez)

"Humankind has not woven the web of life. We are but one thread within it. Whatever we do to the web, we do to ourselves. All things are bound together. All things connect. "– Chief Seattle, 1854

In Episode 61, Sheri Hinish joins Sandra Macquillan, EVP + CSCO of Mondelez, an epic leader and Rebel extraordinaire who is forging a bold path for sustainability and being people positive across supply chains in the world we share.

Sewing the threads of sustainability to form the basis of transparency is no easy task. In this episode, you'll learn how Sandra started her journey as an engineer and was drawn to supply chain because she loves people and the chance to make an impact.

We unpack moving from ambition to insights in Consumer Sustainability and how Mondelez puts the consumer experience and building a better world at the heart of every transaction. This includes exploring cool innovation in agri-tech and empowering smallholders.

Sandra describes how to fund sustainability in your organization + the transition from specialist to leadership in a vulnerable and elegant message to 'always be yourself' explaining why diversity wins.

Lastly, we settle the debate of lowest cost versus risk competitiveness: is lowest cost a thing of the past in disruptive transition?
