BOSTON — March 8, 2022 — Procurious, the world’s leading online business network for supply chain and procurement professionals, today announced the launch of its BRAVO Leadership Program for Women in Procurement and Supply Chain.
This global leadership training program, which was built exclusively to help females advance their careers and make a positive impact in the world, offers members practical guidance, real-world coaching and an unrivaled network of peers. The theme for this year’s program is “Be Part of Something Bigger,” to empower women to be bigger, bolder, take charge of their careers and fulfill their true potential.
The inaugural BRAVO program launched in Australia in 2021 with 417 members, 56 companies, 11 events and 45 speakers. This year, Procurious is expanding BRAVO globally by running the program in APAC, EMEA and the USA concurrently.
“Last year’s BRAVO program was hugely successful, which is why we are so pleased to be launching the program in two new markets this year,” said Tania Seary, founding chairman and CEO of Procurious. “Our goal is to provide members with practical training and a community of like-minded women so they can unlock their full potential, advance their careers, shape a better future and create a positive impact on a global scale.”
