Women in Supply Chain award
Leading B2B Publication Releases 3rd Annual List of the Top Female Supply Chain Professionals
Supply & Demand Chain Executive, the only publication covering the entire global supply chain, has selected Emilie Laliberté as a recipient of the 2022 Women in Supply Chain award.
The Women in Supply Chain award honors female supply chain leaders and executives whose accomplishments, mentorship and examples set a foundation for women in all levels of a company’s supply chain network. This year’s list includes individuals from software and service providers, consultancies and academia, trucking and transportation firms, professional development agencies, sourcing, and procurement divisions, and more, all who have helped supply chain clients and the supply chain community at large prepare to meet many of today’s—and tomorrow’s—challenges.
When I launched this award three years ago, I was prepared for an uphill battle. I was envisioning a long road ahead in getting the supply chain industry educated enough as to why it was important to recognize women in the supply chain. But, this award, the winners and those who submitted nominations—both men and women—is a testament that supply chain organizations were already recognizing their female leaders; they just needed a better platform,” says Marina Mayer, Editor-in-Chief of Supply & Demand Chain Executive and Food Logistics. “This year, we received over 280 submissions. Almost 100 of those submissions came from men. I’m so proud of everyone who participated, both men and women. I’m proud to call these women mentors, role models and industry friends. I’m proud to interview them, support them and help promote their journey. And, I hope to see all of this year’s and past years’ winners at our upcoming Women in Supply Chain Forum.”
I am both humbled and honoured to receive this recognition,"
remarked Ms. Laliberté.
It has been shown that greater diversity and inclusion results in more holistic and robust solutions, which I think is critical given the challenges facing supply chains today. I am continuously motivated with the work at Miebach to solve complex problems, and I know that without a range of diverse perspectives our work would suffer. I look forward to continuing to mentor and coach other females in the supply chain and consulting space, areas in which women have historically been underrepresented."
Bernard Tremblay, CEO and managing Director of Miebach US and Canada agrees that Ms. Laliberté is a driving force for the ongoing evolution of the industry:
Emilie Laliberté has taken her place as a leader in the Supply Chain space thanks to her dedication, perseverance and relentless search for better solutions. Her attitude of constantly improving the status quo and challenging ways of working to find more effective and efficient options have lead her to be seen as a driving force for change and progress. We are privileged to have her as part of our organization, and to work with her towards an ever-evolving world of supply chain excellence."
