Now in their 6th year we are proud to announce that the CRN Women & Diversity in Channel Awards will be back for 2024, as we aim to champion not only women but also wider diversity within the industry.

The challenge of increasing diversity in tech is now firmly on the agenda across the UK, but it is far from a solved problem. These special awards aim to champion, recognise and celebrate women and diversity in the channel.

We want to put firms and individuals in the spotlight that are not only tackling gender issues, but are making diversity, in all senses, a priority within their business.

Women are still well under-represented across the industry. 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 diversity in the channel.

The Women and Diversity in Channel Awards launched a new company category for 2023 for the Best Diversity Recruitment Initiative of the Year.

We’re also continuing with key individual categories including Diversity Champion of the Year and Mental Health Champion of the Year to recognise individuals that have been advocating for these pressing issues and helping to make the IT channel a more inclusive and nurturing place to work.





We have a large, diverse range of categories, and anyone can nominate any woman for any award.
