WiLAT Capacity Building Centre (WCBC) is established with an aim to develop female and next generation leadership; and to encourage knowledge acquisition of the latest industry trends for advancement in our ever-changing world of supply chain, logistics and transport. The inaugural Head of the Centre, Vicky Koo is the Global Chairperson of WiLAT and has pioneered the CALF programme and graduated over a hundred young managers over the years. The inception of WCBC based upon the findings of a survey among members of CILT Hong Kong in 2018 which identified the need to come up with a sustainable capacity building program for female members. The precedent success of CALF programs launched by WiLAT Hong Kong since 2016 and the recent offering on the WiLAT Global platform.
