CRN Women in Channel

 Our Mission Statement

More diverse organisations are known to make better decisions.

And yet most companies in our sector are still run and staffed largely by men. Scan the audience of any industry event, and - likewise - you will be greeted by a sea of male faces.

Building on the success of last year's inaugural CRN Women in Channel Awards, CRN's Women in Channel campaign highlights the channel leaders and companies taking the initiative to make our industry more representative of society at large.

Firms can only do so much at an individual level.

It is only by coming together to raise awareness and share ideas on this important topic that the dial can be moved.
