Harshida Acharya, Partner and CMO at Fulfillment IQ, has achieved a significant honor by receiving this year’s Women in Supply Chain Award. This prestigious award, presented by Food Logistics and Supply & Demand Chain Executive, spotlights female leaders in the supply chain sector whose achievements, mentorship, and role modeling are setting the stage for women at all levels within supply chain networks. 

“This year, we received over 400 submissions, the highest amount of applications not only for this award, but also for all of our awards. What’s more, 118 of those applications were submitted by male counterparts, nominating their boss, co-worker or associate. Last year, that figure was just at 75. Also this year, 39 women self-nominated, a tremendous uptick from last year’s award, which just saw 12 self-nominations. 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.” 

In a domain as dynamic and diverse as the supply chain, Harshida Acharya has emerged as an exemplar of leadership and innovation. This award underscores her remarkable contributions to the field and her unwavering dedication to advancing the industry while championing gender diversity. 

In 2023, we’re seeing more women making a strong comeback in the supply chain world, according to a survey by Gartner, Inc. The good news is that women are making significant gains, especially in the C-Suite and executive positions. In these high-ranking roles, which include titles like CSCO, SVP, EVP, and CPO, women now occupy 26% of them. This marks an all-time high, up from 19% in 2022.  

Harshida is a part of this wave of change. She has played an integral role in the growth of Fulfillment IQ to a multi-million dollar company. She has also been recognized as a top eCom Influencer by Shopify, a testament to her insights and contributions to the eCommerce industry. Her expertise is widely acknowledged, with her articles and insights published in renowned publications like Forbes, Industry Dive, and Supply Chain and Demand Executive, among others. 

Driven by her passion for educating and enlightening people about the supply chain industry, Harshida initiated The eCom Logistics Podcast, taking on the roles of creator and producer. Presently, this podcast stands proudly among the top 5% globally, earning a reputation as one of the most widely shared business podcasts to date. It delivers invaluable insights to a diverse audience keenly interested in the realm of supply chain and logistics. 

Beyond her role at Fulfillment IQ and her podcasting endeavors, Harshida is actively involved in venture capital firms. She serves as an investor, member, and advisor to emerging startups, where her wealth of experience and industry knowledge is invaluable. Her presence on the board of Forum Venture, a venture capital firm, reflects her commitment to nurturing and guiding the growth of these startups. 

One of Harshida’s most notable attributes is her passion for diversity and inclusion. She is a staunch advocate for creating a community of women in supply chain and mentors the next generation of professionals. Her dedication to this cause has earned her numerous accolades and recognitions.
