Leadership: It’s Everyone’s Responsibility

Women from across the IT channel—no matter what stage of their career—find themselves in the throes of sweeping industry, business and cultural change. Now is the time when everyone must lead to their fullest potential whether they are individual contributors or managers of large diverse teams. Everyone has a voice that must be heard.  For these reasons, inclusion and gender diversity initiatives are pertinent business imperatives designed to bring together teams rich in talent and different points of view.

What to Expect From Women of the Channel Leadership Summit

Testimonials

"I have been attending WOTC East for many years now. I look forward to this exciting industry event all year - I arrive excited to network and learn and I leave feeling "recharged and energized" about the coming year and the difference that I can make in my career and my company. Bravo to The Channel Company for continuing to improve and grow this valuable offering. "
- Marilyn Reed, Sr. Director of Sales, Arrow
"This was my first time at Women of the Channel conference. I honestly feel that this conference has truly made a difference in how I see myself and how I want others to see me not only in the workplace, but throughout my life. As I am in the early stages of my career, it's reassuring to hear from such accomplished women that it's okay to fail. It's okay to not be perfect all the time. Your super power is being you and it's our job as women to pass along the flame to others! Thank you to all employees at The Channel Company for putting on such an amazing event! "
- Taylor Roden, Marketing Account Lead, Carahsoft Technology
The WOTC Conference East was the most inspiring and memorable event that I have ever attended. There was not just one or two good speakers, there were a dozen excellent speakers! This is a must-attend conference for every woman in the IT channel."
- Carole Mazzei, US Territory & Partner Marketing Manager, Security, Micro Focus
"The WOTC leadership events are truly inspiring. The topics, presenters and event production are top notch. So much so that I now plan my annual team Ops Reviews around the WOTC On the Road events so that the women on my team can experience the event together, as a team."
-
Maria Gandolfo, Regional Sales Director, Dell EMC
The networking at WOTC was more valuable than all my industry events combined, over the past several years!"
- Marissa Barney, Distribution Account Manager, Fortinet
