Impact Presents: Annie Walker

Join us for a virtual conversation with GT alumna (IE’02), Annie Walker, as we discuss what is the world’s largest private employer doing to champion racial and social justice, and societal value creation; how did Walmart reinvented their supply-chain strategy during COVID; and what skill-sets are in high demand to meet the future of work.

Annie Walker currently serves as the Senior Vice President of Apparel Merchandise Operations for Walmart US. Annie started her career with Walmart in 2002 as an Industrial Engineer. After spending two years with the Stores Engineering team, she supported the replenishment division in several capacities. Annie’s latest role in replenishment was serving as Senior Director of Replenishment for the General Merchandise division. In 2012, Annie transitioned from Replenishment to Vice President for Merchandise Execution responsible for developing and implementing strategies that support and drive the merchant strategy through to store execution. From 2015-2019, Annie led the Over the Counter team as VP DMM.

Annie has a Bachelor of Science in Industrial and Systems Engineering from Georgia Institute of Technology in Atlanta, Georgia.

Impact is a weekly series of meaningful conversations, free and open to all. The main goal of the series is to engage students, faculty, staff, and the wider community on topics that matter through conversations and presentations by leaders and entrepreneurs from all sectors. For the 2021-2022 school year our focus remains on social and racial justice, inclusive leadership, and diversity and equity. Past talks are accessible on the Institute for Leadership and Social Impact's YouTube page.
