September 18, 2023 7:37 AM

ATLANTA, GA. (September 18, 2023) — Food Logistics, the only publication exclusively dedicated to covering the movement of product through the global cold food supply chain, and Supply & Demand Chain Executive, the only publication covering the entire global supply chain, named PorterLogic's Co-Founder and Chief Operations Officer Anya Skomorokhova as one of the winners of this year’s Women in Supply Chain Award. 

This 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.   

"Anya's been a role model in the local community for years, and I'm thrilled her achievements are being recognized on a bigger stage. Seeing diversity in the executive ranks allows young professionals to see themselves in those shoes, to dream bigger, and to be motivated to achieve their goals,” said PorterLogic Founder and CEO Jonathan Porter. “It's not just good politics, it's a sound business strategy to have diversity and inclusion at all levels in a company. In recent years, studies have shown that leadership teams with diverse backgrounds and thoughts will likely make better, bolder decisions and anticipate market shifts, driving them to outperform their peers financially. There's power in role models.”

This year marks the award’s fourth year and the largest number of submission entries yet. 

Food Logistics and Supply & Demand Chain Executive received more than 400 submissions for this year’s award. Of the 400 submissions, male counterparts submitted 118 applications, nominating their boss, co-worker or associate. Last year, that figure was 75. 

“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.”
