CRN Women in Channel Awards 2020


We are thrilled to announce the shortlist for the 2020 Women in Channel Awards. Congratulations to all the finalists - a huge achievement!

Thank you to everyone that took the time to nominate and fill out the questionnaire - we were astounded with the number of nominations and entries we received this year, more than any other year by far! Even in the midst of the pandemic, and what's been a very stressful time for a lot of businesses, it shows how important it is to honour the industry’s female heroes that are inspiring the next generation of women in the channel!

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.

From graduate newcomers to some of our top leaders and entrepreneurs, entries to the CRN Women in Channel Awards reflect a strong desire to shine a light on best practice, wherever it is happening in the UK channel.
