Women in Industry

The American Supply Association (ASA) is the national trade association representing the members of the Supply Industry. The Supply Industry is committed to giving our women members the ability to grow and succeed through dedicated programs, training and education as well as networking opportunities.

Women In Industry – What’s In It for You?

Today’s Supply Industry is not only expanding at a rapid rate, it is also becoming more dynamic every day. The Supply Industry has traditionally been dominated by men. We are now seeing more women moving into leadership roles within the industry. Women leaders have blazed the trail for many more who are currently rising through the ranks of Supply Industry member companies.

To advance the expanding role of women within the Supply Industry, the Women in Industry group was formed. The sole focus of this group is to speak to how the Supply Industry can empower women and provide them with the opportunity to connect—through education, information, and engagement.

Hear from the women of the Supply Industry in their own words:

“Network with other women dealing with the same challenges.”

“High quality networking experiences.”

“Professional connections and development opportunities.”


“Being a woman in a male dominated industry can be a little intimidating, so I was thrilled to hear about the women’s division and joined right away! It has been great to network with other women who are dealing with the same workplace challenges and share each other’s experiences and ideas on how to move forward. I have already made some great friendships through my involvement with this division and know it will continue to be a great resource for me personally, my career and our company.”
