ASQE Excellence Roundtable
Dr. Rhonda Farrell and Jane Keathley served as table captains for the Excellence Roundtable held by ASQE on November 10, 2021.
This capstone event was the final session for the 2021 Ascend Virtual Workshop series for ASQE Organizational Members. The event featured a first look at the 2021 Insights on Excellence results, presented by Stephanie Gaulding, which was followed by two breakout sessions for structured networking.
The first breakout focused on digital transformation and the participants' experiences, especially in supply chain management. The second breakout provided a discussion venue for learning and knowledge, skills, and abilities development.
Each table captain participated in one of the breakout groups and captured key takeaways for report outs a wonderful way for the Innovation TC to collaborate and participate in cutting edge information exchange!

ASQ Celebrates World Quality Month – Keep Up the Momentum
Started by the American Society for Quality (ASQ) in 1984, National Quality Month came to be a joint resolution by Congress and a proclamation by President Ronald Reagan. In 1989, Congress and President George Bush reaffirmed the original legislation and recognized quality as a national priority.
With members and customers in over 130 countries, ASQ and ASQE bring together the people, ideas and tools that make our world better. Together, ASQ and ASQE are honored to lead the annual World Quality Month celebration to showcase the vital role of quality professionals in achieving excellence through quality and the positive impact that quality makes in our organizations and communities around the world.
We also celebrated National Quality Day on November 11, 2021, and National Quality Week from November 8 – 12, 2021.
