Sponsored by The Society for the Advancement of Management Studies (SAMS), the conference is in its first year and addressed ‘Sustainable Operations, Logistics and Supply Chain Management at the Logistics and Supply Chain Management’ Research (LSCM) Centre’.

Rosanna presented her paper, ‘Under what conditions? Transactional and relational factors affecting supplier selection decisions in the purchasing context of social sustainability’, at the conference.

She explained; “The paper introduced a working model of the buyer’s purchasing perspective. There is a process element to the supplier selection decision but also a relational one when pursuing a long term collaboration to achieve mutually beneficial goals with the supplier in relation to improving social sustainability. These two dimensions are examined in detail.”

The award was judged by both attendees and organisers. Rosanna added “I was thrilled to be recognised for producing a strong output at such a specialist event.”
