August 11, 20162 minute read

For AWESOME’s fifth annual Symposium, set for May 3-5, 2017, companies are invited to take on an exciting new role and support the advancement of women’s supply chain leadership by becoming Fifth Anniversary Partners. The first two companies to commit to that level of support are Johnson & Johnson and NIKE, Inc.

“We welcome these outstanding companies as champions of women’s leadership and thank them for their commitment,” said Ann Drake, AWESOME founder and CEO of DSC Logistics. “We invite companies to join them in helping leaders throughout our field as we celebrate AWESOME’s remarkable progress and continue our work.”

Since AWESOME was founded in early 2013, the network of women in senior supply chain leadership roles has grown to more than 800 members. Johnson & Johnson became the first company to take on a role as Symposium Host Partner in 2015, and NIKE hosted the Symposium in 2016. The Fifth Anniversary Partner level of sponsorship has been opened to companies committing to $50,000 of support.

Fifth Anniversary Partners will be featured at the Symposium as well as in AWESOME communications. One of the unique benefits will be taking part in a facilitated benchmarking session with senior executives from other Fifth Anniversary Partners on the first morning of the Symposium, May 3.

According to Nancy Nix, Executive Director of AWESOME, “Women are making significant progress in supply chain because of companies that take meaningful action on diversity and have a positive impact on our profession. In this special Symposium partnership, they not only bring their company strengths to the forefront of our growing network, but they’re able to send a strong message of support to women throughout their organization.”

To become a Fifth Anniversary Partner, contact Heather Sheehan, AWESOME’s Director of Member Engagement and Sponsorships.
