DSC Logistics CEO Ann Drake is profiled in the current issue of Supply Chain Quarterly, a publication of Council of Supply Chain Management Professionals (CSCMP), as a “trailblazer …on a mission: to help qualified women—in supply chain management and beyond—move into the top ranks of business leadership.”
In the article, “C-suite crusader,” Ann talks about why she is a champion for women, what’s been achieved so far and what she hopes the future will bring. She discusses the rapid growth and resources of AWESOME, the women’s leadership network she founded in 2013, and her involvement in the Paradigm for Parity coalition, a recently formed group of executives who pledge to achieve gender parity in their companies’ corporate leadership.
“I see the work I’m involved in outside the company as a platform for improving the world we live in,” said Ann in response to the question of what motivates her to devote time and effort beyond her own company and industry. “I want to help make it possible for a workplace, a country, a school system, a cultural institution to be able to achieve their best by having diverse members and people in their organizations.”
