Nancy Nix, Executive Director of Achieving Women's Excellence in Supply Chain Operations, Management, and Education (AWESOME), will receive the Council of Supply Chain Management Professionals'  (CSCMP) 2017 Distinguished Service Award.

Dr. Nix is formerly Executive Director of the EMBA Program and Professor of Professional Practice in Supply Chain Management at the Neely School of Business at Texas Christian University. She received her doctorate in Logistics from the University of Tennessee and her MBA from Temple University. She has extensive management experience with the DuPont Company and Reliance Industries Ltd., in Mumbai, India.

She was among the featured speakers in the “Women in Logistics” webcast sponsored by APICs last May – a first for Logistics Management.

“Diversity powers innovation,” she said. “The optimal gender representation on teams is 50-50.”

Dr. Nix has served as Executive Director of AWESOME since 2014, and has helped grow membership to over 1,000 women in senior leadership roles, creating the first network of this size and prominence for women in supply chain. She has developed "powered by AWESOME" programs that provide leading female professionals as speakers and panelists for countless supply chain events, raising the profiles of women as experts and accomplished leaders.

Under Nancy's leadership, AWESOME has fostered a collaborative relationship with CSCMP that includes programming and promotion, and provides substantive content and visibility to both organizations. Nancy has been invaluable in establishing this ongoing collaboration due to her knowledge of both organizations and the discipline, and her commitment to working together.
