Supply Chain Issues Abound, but FIT Professors Have Strategies

Two International Trade and Marketing (ITM) faculty and a Production Management faculty member recently participated in the Product Innovation Apparel Supply Chain Forum, a New York–based industry event aimed at sourcing and logistics professionals in the fashion business.

On Nov. 28, Yelena Mogelefsky, ITM, spoke on a panel titled “Evolution of Supply Chain Strategy in an Unpredictable Market.” Sharing the stage with faculty from California College of the Arts and Universal Standard, she discussed how to apply lessons from the COVID-19 pandemic to future sourcing challenges.
