As the foremost organization dedicated to building a worldwide community of women supply chain leaders, AWESOME provides an ongoing and far-reaching forum for exchanging our ideas, sharing and comparing our experiences, finding solutions to our challenges and expanding our individual and combined knowledge-base. Through AWESOME, women executives meet each other, talk about supply chain topics, focus on women’s leadership issues, explore connections and collaborations, and work together to develop the next generation of women supply chain leaders.
Part of our mission is to share information and learning – the Collective Wisdom – of AWESOME women. Think of it as the listening-based record of up-to-date thinking of supply chain leaders.
Here you’ll find wisdom of four types:
MAKING WAVES: At the AWESOME Symposiums in 2018 and 2019, which involved leading women in the supply chain field as well as leaders from other fields, two collaborative brainstorming Making Waves sessions produced an Action Agenda of specific actions that can be taken by an individual to have a positive impact on women’s leadership. The 2019 Agenda further consolidates thinking about what actions will prove most effective.
REALITY CHECK: These six volumes of insights and observations contain the most significant wisdom collected at AWESOME’s events: Beginning with the first AWESOME Symposium in May 2013 and continuing through the Fifth Anniversary Symposium in 2017.
WORDS OF WISDOM are quotes from people involved in the conversation about women’s leadership: How can women be better, stronger, more successful in our field and in other professions? What kinds of circumstances do women face? How can we make the environment and the culture more conducive to advancing women’s leadership?
RECOMMENDED READING: From time to time, AWESOME provides a list of books and journals that present relevant and intriguing insights on being a leader and succeeding as a leader.
