What does Women's History Month mean to you?
Women's History Month is an opportunity for us all to celebrate the contributions of Women around the world! I recognize that I stand on the shoulders of many women who paved the way for me to lead in Distribution and Logistics and for this, I'm particularly honored to be part of the narrative of Women leading the way! I don't take my responsibility lightly as there are other Women that will stand on my shoulders and be elevated to even greater heights.
