CRN is proud to be re-launching our Women in Channel Awards
Recognising the female role models that will inspire the next generation
When we launched the CRN Women in Channel, we were unsure to what extent our industry would welcome the campaign.
Last year's mandatory reporting of gender pay gap figures was a high-profile, and sobering, reminder that the tech industry is not reflective of the society in which we live.
Yet the response from channel figures across the spectrum was resoundingly positive.
From graduate newcomers to some of our top leaders and entrepreneurs, entries to the CRN Women in Channel Awards reflected a strong desire to shine a light on best practice, wherever itis happening in the UK channel.
The awards 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.
If you know a woman like that - or you are one yourself - take a look at our categories and get entering.
- We'd like you to tell us, in 150 words or less, why you are nominating or entering into your chosen category.
- All categories are free to enter.
- Winners will be invited, along with their colleagues, to attend the awards ceremony at The Brewery on 17 October.
- The nomination deadline is 5pm, Friday 17th May
It's no secret that the technology industry suffers a diversity problem. Walk into any mainstream tech event and you could probably count the number of women on your hand.
The same goes for boardrooms, with many companies still struggling to promote women into senior roles.
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.
Make sure you shine a light on your own achievements, and that of your companies, by getting involved and sending in your entries.
Entry deadline: 5pm, Friday 17th May
