The SEDE Network will host a webinar on the topic of data, resiliency, and sustainability in state and national supply chains. Nikhil Kalathil will be presenting on the information gap between small manufacturers and the federal government which hampered the government’s ability to respond more quickly to PPE shortages. Buckley Brinkman will give a presentation on his experience in Wisconsin using data to better understand supply chain vulnerabilities, catalog suppliers, and how to address challenges in the future. Finally, Zack Valdez will be discussing the DOE perspective on supply chain challenges and resilience.
