Supply Chain College Student Program
RILA and its Supply Chain Conference Steering Committee hope to encourage, interest and educate the next generation about the many opportunities available to them in the retail industry by giving them the means to attend a RILA conference. Through the Supply Chain College Student Program, RILA member companies have the opportunity to sponsor and mentor students whose college studies focus on the retail supply chain. The sponsoring companies accompany their student throughout the conference in an effort to provide direct insight into the retail industry, specifically in the supply chain function. This year's sponsoring companies include: Canadian Tire Corporation, DHL, J.C. Penney Company, Inc. Lowe's Companies Inc., Meijer, Inc., and PETCO Animal Supplies Inc.
This year's students been selected from institutions across North America. The students have the opportunity to explore current issues in the field and network with senior logistics executives at RILA's Retail Supply Chain Conference. As part of the program, the students are asked to research a topic and prepare a joint presentation during one of the event's breakout session, Future Retail Leaders. For their research this year, students will focus on skill sets of new hires in the retail industry.
