“Top Female Leaders of the Supply Chain”
“I am pleased to receive this recognition,” said DSC’s Drake. “At DSC, we believe that one of our key roles as a supply chain partner is to collaborate with our customers up and down the supply chain – sharing information, ideas, best practices and strategies, and finding solutions together.
“I’m also proud to be among women selected as ‘Top Female Leaders.’ Our profession is beginning to realize benefits from the strengths women bring to leadership, and I find throughout the industry an eagerness to step up the slow progress in that direction,” she continued. “That’s why I’m working with other top supply chain leaders on an initiative we’ve named “AWESOME” – Advancing Women’s Excellence in Supply Chain Operations, Management and Education.”
With the “Provider Pro to Know” designation, SCDE honors supply chain professionals who help their supply chain clients or community prepare to meet industry challenges.
