After a successful inaugural year, Food Logistics and Supply & Demand Chain Executive open registration for the second annual, in-person Women in Supply Chain Forum, aimed at helping supply chain professionals and industry experts learn, grow, network, and more.
Food Logistics and Supply & Demand Chain Executive opens registration for the second annual Women in Supply Chain Forum, an in-person event designed to bring together CEOs, Presidents, Partners, Vice Presidents, and Director-Level Decision Makers in charge of shipment, distribution centers, warehousing, and third party logistics in order to foster education, growth, networking opportunities, and more.
This premier networking event, which will take place Nov. 14-15 at the Hotel Colle in Atlanta, is tailored to both men and women in executive-level positions to expand their professional network and enhance their businesses through thought-provoking discussion panels centered around advocating and promoting women in the supply chain space.
This year’s theme, Better Together: How Collaboration Promotes Women in Supply Chain, will bring together leading experts in the industry to discuss company culture, mentorship, women in STEM, DEI efforts, industry trends and more.
The 1.5-day agenda will consist of fireside chats, Breakfast of Champions, panel discussions, breakout sessions and a discussion with our two overall Women in Supply Chain winners to talk about their journey, their initiatives, mentorship, workforce development and more.
Session panelists include industry experts such as Katie Date, SVP, Industry Relations & Strategic Initiatives from Manifest; Nicole Glenn, Founder and CEO of Candor Expedite and Supply & Demand Chain Executive’s 2023 Overall Pros to Know Winner; Erez Agmoni, Global Head of Innovation at MAERSK; Charlie Saffro, President of CS Recruiting Inc.; Allison Graelis, President of Women in Manufacturing (WiM); and Sarah Barnes-Humphrey, owner of Let’s Talk Supply Chain podcast and the Blended Pledge project and sponsor of the Women in Supply Chain award.
Katie Date will also be heading our breakout session, The Art of Mentorship Workshop, on Wednesday, November 15, which will cover how to be a good mentor as well as a mentee.
“Three years ago, we created and launched the Women in Supply Chain award, designed to honor female supply chain leaders and executives whose accomplishments, mentorship and examples set a foundation for women in all levels of a company’s supply chain network,” says Marina Mayer, Editor-in-Chief of Supply & Demand Chain Executive and Food Logistics. “This award acts as the stepping stone to our in-person event; to bring industry leaders together to learn, network and collaborate.
“Gender diversity continues to be top of mind for many of today’s supply chains. While the supply chain industry is excelling at incorporating more women in the supply chain, there’s still more work to be done. This forum was designed to provide that safe space to talk about the real problems and challenges impacting females across the logistics space. For me, this forum enables men and women to come together and get real about the realities of what’s challenging and presenting opportunities for companies in all facets of the logistics spectrum.”
