–News Direct–

Food Logistics, the only publication exclusively dedicated to covering the movement of product through the global cold food supply chain, and Supply & Demand Chain Executive, the only publication covering the entire global supply chain, named ToolsGroup CEO, Inna Kuznetsova, as one of the winners of this years Women in Supply Chain Award, which honors female supply chain leaders and executives whose accomplishments, mentorship and examples set a foundation for women in all levels of a companys supply chain network. This is the third consecutive year Kuznetsova has been recognized for this award.

This year, we received over 400 submissions, the highest amount of applications not only for this award, but also for all of our awards. Whats more, 118 of those applications were submitted by male counterparts, nominating their boss, co-worker, or associate. Last year, that figure was just 75. Also this year, 39 women self-nominated, a tremendous uptick from last years award, which just saw 12 self-nominations. This shows progress. This shows hope that one day, we wont need an award like this because men and women in the supply chain will be equal, says Marina Mayer, Editor-in-Chief of Food Logistics and Supply & Demand Chain Executive. While theres still more work to be done, what were doing is working. From truck drivers to CEOs, what these winners are doing matters to the future of all supply chains.

Im honored to be recognized among so many distinguished women leaders in supply chain, said Kuznetsova. Modern leadership should foster collaboration and creativity, helping individuals realize their full potential while participating in a greater mission. At ToolsGroup, that mission is to make supply chain a force for good. Im proud to be part of a team and an organization that embodies these values, driving customer-centric innovations and helping companies navigate supply chain uncertainty.

Women have been making a significant impact in supply chain management, contributing to the growth and innovation of the supply chain industry. As more women join the supply chain workforce, they bring diverse perspectives that can help address complex supply chain problems and improve global supply chain operations. It is important that we empower, recognize and elevate these achievements through initiatives like the Women in Supply Chain Award, as seen through the overwhelming response. Congratulations to all the winners, those who nominated others and the bravery of those who nominated themselves, adds Sarah Barnes-Humphrey, founder of Lets Talk Supply Chain podcast and Blended Pledge project, both exclusive sponsors of the Women in Supply Chain award.
