DMSi Draws New Talent to the Building Materials Industry
DMSi Software has partnered with the University of Nebraska to support the future of supply chain professionals. The company is providing six scholarships annually for students with junior or senior status majoring in Supply Chain Management across the University’s three campuses.
The scholarship program is the latest development in DMSi’s initiative to draw new, young talent to the building materials industry. The company has been developing a strong relationship with the School’s Department of Supply Chain Management and Analytics for several years.
In addition to the company’s financial contribution to a new building for the College of Business, DMSi employees are connecting with educators and students. Team members have presented to classes and been guests on panel discussions exploring real-world issues in supply chain management.
DMSi has built especially close ties with the Department’s student organization, the Nebraska Supply Chain Club (NSCC). Most recently, the company arranged for club members to tour a customer’s operation, so students could see classroom theories put into practice.
“It’s important to connect with young talent,” says Cindy McCarville, a Senior Account Manager at DMSi. “They are the future. It’s our duty to help them see the building materials industry as a viable career path. This is a great way to support our schools and bring new talent to our industry.”
