There's nothing more energizing than being in a room full of people who not only are in the same profession as you but also understand what it took to get where you are today—and what you need to further advance your career. That's exactly what the female logistics and supply chain executives who attend the third annual AWESOME Symposium May 6-7 in New Brunswick, N.J., will find at this unique educational and networking event.
AWESOME, the name of the nonprofit organization founded by Ann Drake, CEO of DSC Logistics, stands for "Achieving Women's Excellence in Supply Chain Operations, Management, and Education." The group's purpose, says Executive Director Nancy Nix, is to advance women supply chain leaders. In addition to networking and professional development activities, the organization also presents scholarships and an annual leadership award, conducts research, and produces educational programs. AWESOME currently has more than 500 members.
