AWESOME – Achieving Women’s Excellence in Supply Chain Operations, Management and Education, is an initiative launched by Ann Drake, CEO of DSC Logistics, bringing together over 400 women in Supply Chain Leadership roles. The annual symposium brings together supply chain leaders for an exciting day of networking, collaboration and learning. Daniella participated on one of the afternoon panels, on the topic of ‘Powering Up The Pipeline’.
Panel: ‘Powering Up The Pipeline’
Companies who lead the way in developing the next generation of leaders presented their innovative programs, and women who’ve emerged from those programs added their insights. What gave their companies impetus to begin women’s leadership programs? How does a company take the right steps to get an initiative started? How did they define success and have they achieved it? What have been their most successful program elements and is there anything they would do differently to have a greater impact on the chances for women to advance? From the emerging leaders’ point of view, how do they think this program affected their careers?
