DALLAS, TX — Sept. 18, 2023 — Supply chain publications Food Logistics and Supply & Demand Chain Executive have named three BNSF Logistics’ leaders — Vice President of Digital Freight Services Brittany Bemben, Vice President of Sales Allison Glahn, and Senior Operations Manager Kris Marvin — as recipients of this year’s 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 company’s supply chain network.
“In honoring the achievements of Brittany, Allison, and Kris with the Women in Supply Chain Award, we celebrate the ongoing journey towards equality in our industry,” said Cami Misch, interim president and CEO at BNSF Logistics. “Their success highlights the power of diversity and underlines the pivotal role women play in shaping a dynamic and inclusive supply chain landscape. Let their accomplishments inspire us to drive further innovation and inclusivity for all.”
According to Marina Mayer, editor-in-chief of Food Logistics and Supply & Demand Chain Executive, nominations for this year’s awards were the highest ever. “This year, we received more than 400 submissions, the highest number 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 75,” she said. “Also, 39 women self-nominated, a tremendous uptick from last year’s award, which just saw 12 self-nominations. This shows progress. 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.”
Sarah Barnes-Humphrey, founder of Let’s Talk Supply Chain podcast and Blended Pledge project, both exclusive sponsors of the Women in Supply Chain award, said award recipients represent some of the top leaders in the logistics industry. “Women have been making a significant impact in supply chain management, contributing to the growth and innovation of the industry. 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.”
