June 05, 20241 minute read

We’re still abuzz with excitement following the conclusion of the 11th Annual AWESOME Symposium. Among the many highlights of this year’s event, we wanted to share with you one that was particularly special—the captivating conversation between our special guest, Drew Barrymore, and AWESOME’s CEO, Michelle Dilley.

During their time on stage, Drew and Michelle had an authentic conversation about what it means to be a multi-hyphenate woman in 2024. Drew shared candid stories about her journey and the lessons she’s learned along the way. What resonated most with us was Drew’s emphasis on authenticity, resilience, and creativity in leadership. 

We sincerely thank Drew Barrymore, the MADE BY GATHER team, and Walmart for their invaluable contributions to this year’s Symposium. Their support helped create an unforgettable experience for all who attended.

As we reflect on the Symposium’s success, we’re reminded of the incredible power of connection and collaboration within our AWESOME community. Together, we’re not just shaping the future of supply chain leadership but redefining what it means to lead with authenticity and purpose.

Thank you to everyone who participated in making this event a resounding success. Let’s carry forward the inspiration and insights gained at the Symposium as we continue championing women’s leadership in the supply chain and beyond.
