About Event Intro paragraph: 

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.

Women of the Channel Leadership Summit includes the most prominent and rising women across the spectrum of builders, buyers and sellers. 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. Attendees benefit from interactive workshops, peer panels, motivational speakers, networking time and engaging sessions – all focused on the challenges, trends and opportunities in the today’s technology sector.

 


Together We Thrive

Women in business--no matter what stage of their career--find themselves in the throes of sweeping industry, business and cultural change. While their channel-centric organizations are thriving, they are in need of a diverse set of talents to fill the gaps that will allow them to accelerative growth. Inclusion and gender diversity initiatives are suddenly business imperatives designed to bring together the best and available talent with teams rich in different points of view. Women who have a seat the table need to use their positions to eradicate bias while reaching across that table to drive inclusion that can advance everyone. Women of the channel are in a unique position to capitalize on this power shift to establish themselves as leaders enabled by their followers who believe in the power of diversity and inclusion.

Channel@Work Title: 
Giving Back
Channel@Work paragraph: 

This year at the Women of the Channel: Leadership Summit we are excited to announce that we will be participating in The Channel Company’s charitable component called Channel@Work.   Channel@Work is our way of giving back to the local communities that host our events. We have partnered with Win,  the largest provider of shelter and supportive housing for homeless families in New York City. For more than 30 years, Win has provided safe housing, critical services, and ground-breaking programs to help homeless women and their children rebuild their lives and break the cycle of homelessness.  Most of Win families are headed by women, many of whom have fled domestic violence. These are the forgotten faces of homelessness — the mothers, grandmothers, aunts, and sisters who struggle to keep their families together and safe.

How can you help?
Please consider packing or picking up a NEW coat or jacket for any gender, size & age to donate and/or support our raffle and donate an item to be raffled off at the end of the event.   The raffle will be held on Tuesday, December 4th at the conclusion of the final keynote.   Tickets are $5 each or 5 for $20. All raffle proceeds and donations will help support the WIN domestic violence shelters and programs.   We will be accepting all donations onsite at the registration desk for the duration of the event.

“Excellent event that brought women together into an open, caring, fun environment where we could share experiences, both personal and professional.”

– Jari Brandt, Palo Alto Networks

“Women of the Channel West exceeded my expectations.  It was a special day learning from like-minded women who shared their experiences for effectively navigating a male dominated industry and do it with grace and gaining wisdom.  They provided inspirational tips about successes and allowing yourselves to accept the failures and move beyond.  It certainly opened my eyes to small changes I can make with my interactions with others both male and female.”

– Tina Morarity-Breunig, Netformx

“This event is top notch and a very supportive environment for women of the channel to come together, learn from each other and work on skills with other women who have blazed those trails before them.  I highly recommend this event to any woman who is passionate about the channel and interested in learning from and meeting like minded women.”
