Celebrating Women in STEM – Meet Linda

Meet Linda - a team member we're profiling this International Women's Day

At Coca-Cola Amatil this week, we are celebrating Amatil women in supply chain who are choosing to challenge for an inclusive world, including our very own General Manager for Supply Chain, Linda Leo.
 
Linda’s curiosity sparked her interest in supply chain, and it has never left. Linda has been working at Amatil for the past 17 years and has been a strong champion on encouraging more girls and women into the industry and supporting the right role models and leaders that you can relate and aspire to.
 
“I think it’s important, regardless of the female to male ratio, to create a workplace where you feel included and your contributions are valued. Only then, can everyone thrive.”
 
For Linda, the key to attracting great diversity in STEM roles within the Supply Chain industry is creating greater flexible work arrangements and removing existing barriers that prevent women from choosing these fields.
 
“We need to create transition programs that support women to re-enter the workforce after parental leave or carer responsibilities and dispel the mindset that certain industries for more suitable for males.”
 
We are proud to share Linda’s story, and the stories of all women in Amatil, who are making tremendous strides within their careers, and choosing to do it at Coca-Cola Amatil.
