Build Connections. Master Leadership. Inspire Others

Today’s women who lead or aspire to inspire others must possess the language of possibility. To break new ground for their organizations, ascend personally and professionally, women must understand that possibility is a new framework for thinking. This means getting comfortable with what is less certain and choosing words that drive invention and creativity. Women of the channel today are gaining significant power across the IT industry and in the corporate world. Their roles and influence have clearly evolved into a major force. As individuals and collectively, women today can change the way people think about the future of sales, marketing and partner management.

This one-of-a-kind event empowers and cultivates the next generation of female leaders; and offers female channel and IT executives an opportunity to advance their skills, network with peers and be inspired by the women making a significant impact on the IT channel and industry today.
