"The Channel Company is proud to be at the forefront of a growing movement to recognize women's vast contribution to the IT community and promote their increased professional advancement in the channel," said Lisa Mackenzie, partner and senior vice president, The Channel Company. "For years we have been leading the push to identify and celebrate the many women whose hard work and ingenuity have a profound impact on the IT channel every day. We are excited about the future of Women of the Channel and will continue our mission to empower women in technology though our events and online community."
The Channel Company's WOTC live events have consistently grown in size in response to steeply increased demand; over the past seven years, attendance across the events has more than tripled (from a mere 120 guests at the very first event to nearly 800 in 2016), gaining huge momentum in what has historically been a male-dominated IT industry. The WOTC Europe conference in November will introduce Women of the Channel to the European technology sector, bringing together influential women from solution provider, technology supplier and distributor organizations across key European markets to tackle pressing business technology issues and assess the state of today's global IT channel.
