Stratom is proud to announce that Sara Blackmer, SVP, Corporate Strategy, has received the 2021 Supply & Demand Chain Executive Women in Supply Chain award. The Women in Supply Chain award honors 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.
Undoubtedly “a Woman of the Supply Chain,” Sara Blackmer helps international corporations, local businesses and government institutions revolutionize the global supply chain with autonomous systems that solve a broad range of real-world logistics and operations challenges.
Inspired by how Stratom’s autonomous technologies aim to make the world a better place, Blackmer plays an instrumental role in helping people to understand what autonomous technologies can do and what their limitations are, building trust between machines and humans, and finding ways to help people employ autonomous systems in a smart fashion that truly solves the most difficult challenges facing the international supply chain.
As “a Woman of the Supply Chain,” Blackmer thinks that diverse teams produce the best solutions. And the team at Stratom does not disappoint. Ideas germinate with different people thinking differently, ultimately producing a better product, technology, way to solve a problem and solution as a whole. At the end of the day, supply chain innovation allows organizations to better focus their time, talent and resources on the actual primary function, as opposed to the supporting of that function.
