You might not have heard, but Canada’s most influential professional association for Supply Chain is celebrating its 100th anniversary. The Supply Chain Management Association™ (SCMA™) is about to enter its second century. To mark this occasion – and to honour International Women’s Day – the SCMA is launching a list of the 100 Most Influential Women in Canadian Supply Chain.
Today, we’re thrilled to announce that Argentus’ President and Senior Partner Bronwen Hann has made the list.
This new list honours the women who have done the most to move the Supply Chain profession forward – and open up opportunities for women in what used to be seen as a male-dominated field. We’ve written in the past on the Argentus blog about the topic of women in Supply Chain – how the industry’s demographics are changing, but how companies aren’t doing enough to ensure that women live up to their potential by moving them into leadership roles. It’s a topic that’s near and dear to our hearts at Argentus as a female-owned, majority-female company specialized entirely within Supply Chain.
We couldn’t be happier that Bronwen made the list, given all the work she’s done to help move women forward in the profession over the past 18 years. But the unveiling of the list in general also shows how the demographics of the Supply Chain industry are changing.
Take it from us: there’s more to be done, but the field has come a long way.
“I’m so proud,” she says, “of what we’ve been able to accomplish, but also how far the industry has come. It’s such an honour to be recognized in this first group of women. I want to thank the SCMA for recognizing my contributions, and for everything they’ve done to bolster the Supply Chain industry in Canada. It’s an incredible growth sector and will only continue to grow. Going forward, I hope to continue to make significant contributions towards opening the industry up to a diverse demographic.”
Bronwen Hann has been a recruiter for over 35 years. In 2000, she founded Argentus, a recruitment company specialized entirely within Supply Chain Management and its associated disciplines of Procurement, Logistics, Operations, and Planning. Today, Argentus is one of Canada’s leading recruitment firms in the field, as well as a provider of thought leadership and industry info through its content outlet, the Argentus Blog. This honour marks the latest success in a storied career.
So we take a break from our regularly scheduled Supply Chain industry info to give a heartfelt congrats to Bronwen for this honour. We also want to give kudos to SCMA for starting this initiative, and congratulations to them on their hundredth anniversary! Here’s to a hundred more.
