Food Logistics and Supply & Demand Chain Executive Award Honors Female Supply Chain Leaders and Executives Whose Accomplishments, Mentorship and Examples Set a Foundation for Others
LAKE FOREST, Calif., Sept. 18, 2023 — Food Logistics and Supply & Demand Chain Executive presents its 2023 Women in Supply Chain Award to Toshiba America Business Solutions Director of Supply Chain Planning Tracy Zhou.
Food Logistics, the only publication exclusively dedicated to covering the movement of products through the global cold food supply chain, and Supply & Demand Chain Executive, the only publication covering the entire global supply chain, names Zhou as one of the winners of this year’s Women in Supply Chain Award. The award honors female supply chain leaders and executives whose accomplishments, mentorship and examples set a foundation for women at all levels of a company’s supply chain network.
“This year, we received over 400 submissions, the highest amount of applications not only for this award, but also for all of our awards. What’s more, 118 of those applications were submitted by male counterparts, nominating their boss, co-worker or associate. Last year, that figure was just at 75. Also this year, 39 women self-nominated, a tremendous uptick from last year’s award, which just saw 12 self-nominations. This shows progress. This shows hope that one day, we won’t 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 there’s still more work to be done, what we’re doing is working. From truck drivers to CEOs, what these winners are doing matters to the future of all supply chains.”
“Tracy is a highly polished and talented professional,” states Toshiba America Business Solutions Vice President of Supply Chain and Planning Jason P. LaComb. “Ever confident in demeanor, positive in outlook, and capable in action, she comes to work each day with high energy, leading and supporting our planning teams toward the ultimate goal of delivering the right product, in the right place, at the right time and for the right cost every day of the week!”
