TORONTO, March 8, 2019 /CNW/ - To celebrate its 100th anniversary and honour outstanding women in the profession, the Supply Chain Management AssociationTM (SCMA™) today launches its first-ever list of the 100 Influential Women in Canadian Supply Chain™ and its first-ever list of Women to Watch in Canadian Supply ChainTM.
The 100 Influential Women in Canadian Supply ChainTM list is a diverse and powerful group that includes C-Suite executives and corporate leaders, academics, professional service leaders, and other experts and influencers within Canada's supply chain sector. Every day, these dedicated professionals are making a difference to sustainability, efficiency and profitability. Women in supply chain work in fast-moving environments where disruptive technologies, consumer demands and geo-political issues inform their decisions and impact the strategic, operational and financial success of their organizations.
"Individually, each of these women plays a critical role in driving value for their organizations, and, collectively, these 100 leaders are truly driving the Canadian economy," said Christian Buhagiar, President and CEO, SCMATM. "We are delighted to honour the career achievements of these 100 Influential Women in Canadian Supply Chain™ by conferring upon them the Supply Chain Management Professional (SCMP™) designation, Canada's most sought-after professional designation in supply chain."
The Women to Watch in Canadian Supply ChainTM list recognizes additional supply chain professionals who are stepping up within the community. These women have also positioned themselves as leaders in the profession and are poised to continue growing their impact on their organizations and on the profession itself.
"With both our '100 Influential Women in Canadian Supply Chain' and the 'Women to Watch in Canadian Supply Chain', the SCMA aspires to promote awareness of supply chain careers, encourage women to join the sector, and build the capacity of Canada's supply chain economy," said Mr. Buhagiar.
The women on both the 100 Influential Women in Canadian Supply ChainTM list and the Women to Watch in Canadian Supply ChainTM list will receive a one-year membership in SCMA and benefit from belonging to and engaging with Canada's largest community of supply chain professionals. SCMA.com/IWD2019
