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.

Giving Back

As an attendee and advocate of Women of the Channel I encourage you to support our charity initiative this year.  Willow International is an inspiring nonprofit organization dedicated to the prevention, rescue and aftercare of women who are survivors of the sex trafficking industry.

Human trafficking victimizes 21 million people worldwide and is the world’s largest criminal business.  This is a global issue that requires global solutions and we are asking for your help.  Attached below you will find a list of items that are needed.  Your donations will help combat the war against human trafficking while providing survivors with hope, dignity and courage to fight for a better future. 

Women of the Chanel is going global.  With our Europe event launching in November, we wanted to partner with an organization whose mission is to help and empower women worldwide.  We are so honored to be working with Willow International who is dedicated to empowering these women to heal and graduate into a life of freedom and self-sufficiency.
