TORONTO – CITT has developed a new course – Ethics & Sustainability in the Supply Chain – which will be available immediately in its upcoming spring semester, starting April 29, 2019.

“A significant new initiative from CITT is to address the professional development needs from industry that go beyond technical abilities” said Pina Melchionna, CITT president and CEO.

“We’ve been hearing more and more that businesses are having difficulty finding people with the transferrable “soft’ skills” they look for in well-rounded professionals. In response, we’ve made it a priority to develop courses that build these skills, and teach them in the context of supply chain logistics.”

Last spring, CITT introduced the course Negotiation Strategies for Supply Chain Professionals, which was very popular. With business ethincs becoming a hot topics, the institute decided it was time to add this new course offering.

“Integrity and trustworthiness are powerful drivers of both corporate and personal success in business” said the new course’s facilitator, Paul Kurrat.

“In developing this course, we consulted with many respected supply chain professionals to get real-world cases with ethical implications. As a result, the course is practical and actionable. Professionals from all seniority levels will be able to walk away from this course with the ability to identify and resolve ethics issues – and to develop a critical path to mitigate and avoid crises.”

Registration for CITT’s spring semester of courses towards its CITT-Certified Logistics Professional is open. Those interested in registering for a course or in the full program are advised to visit www.citt.ca/courses.
