Participants in AWESOME events at the CSCMP Edge Conference September 24-27 will be the first to receive the new REALITY CHECK, published by AWESOME and containing insights and observations on advancing women’s leadership collected from the 2017 AWESOME Symposium. The new volume — sixth in the REALITY CHECK series, first published in 2013 — also features a retrospective that tracks the progression of thinking and priorities related to women’s supply chain leadership since the first Symposium in 2013.
Since AWESOME’s founding, the initiative that started mainly as an opportunity for leading women in supply chain to meet each other has grown into an action-oriented commitment to support change and improve prospects for women leaders in the supply chain field. For a preview of the special retrospective featured in Volume Six, click here.
Printed copies of REALITY CHECK, Volume 6 – “Passion, Pain, and Progress: How women are seizing opportunities, overcoming obstacles, and creating new paths to leadership” — will be distributed at the networking reception hosted by AWESOME and sponsored by CBRE on Sunday, September 24, and the Mega Session powered by AWESOME on Wednesday, September 27.
Members of the AWESOME network, which has expanded from 200 to more than 1,000 women in senior leadership roles, have contributed wisdom through Symposium discussions and networking. Compiling their comments, REALITY CHECK provides an in-depth look at issues facing women as they move into higher levels in their organization as well as leadership lessons that have helped them succeed.
In addition to the perspectives of leading women in supply chain, the report also includes those of male supply chain leaders and accomplished women in other fields.
