Celebrating and Encouraging Women in Supply Chain

Women in Supply ChainBy APICS CEO Abe Eshkenazi, CSCP, CPA, CAE

Since 2012, The Manufacturing Institute has celebrated women in manufacturing with its STEP (Science, Technology, Engineering and Production) Ahead Awards, which recognize women in manufacturing who exemplify leadership within their companies. This April marked the sixth STEP Ahead Awards, and, once again, APICS was proud to co-sponsor the event.

STEP Ahead is a national honor that identifies the best women in manufacturing, including supply chain, and further encourages women to mentor and support the next generation of female talent to pursue these promising and fulfilling careers. On the evening of the event, STEP Ahead recognized 100 Honorees and 30 Emerging Leaders at a gala in Washington, D.C.
