Recognising the female role models that will inspire the next generation

As anyone who has ever attended an industry conference and glanced around the audience will testify, the IT channel has a gender diversity problem.

Research suggests that more diverse firms perform better, and yet our industry - like many others - remains male dominated.

Over the coming months, CRN will be exploring how best to tackle gender imbalance in the channel. We will be seeking opinions from all walks of the industry, and from both women and men.

Does the problem lie in our education system? What more, if anything, can be done at an industry level? How should firms ensure their culture does not unconsciously discourage women from joining or advancing in their business? Alternatively, is it patronising to even highlight the issue at all?

Wherever the fault lies, there is no shortage of talented female staff at vendors, distributors and resellers - from company founders down to high-performing new starters - capable of inspiring the next generation.

We feel that shouting about the accomplishments of women in the channel - not because they are women, but because their accomplishments are worth shouting about - can play an important role in tackling the issue.

This is why our Women in Channel debate will culminate in an awards ceremony on 18 October that will recognise the achievements of the entrepreneurs, leaders and exceptional employees who can act as role models for young females considering a career in this fast-paced, dynamic industry.
