CRN launches Women in Channel hub
Stay on top of all the major news and views on gender diversity, which has become a major focal point for our industry in 2018
CRN's Women in Channel campaign will culminate in an awards ceremony on 18 October in central London. The deadline for nominations is 25 May.
In the meantime, the CRN editorial team will use the content hub to bring you coverage of the industry's gender diversity issue from all angles.
Look out for interviews with key industry figures, analysis of recent pay gap data within our sector, and real-world examples of how firms benefit from having a more diversified workforce.
We're also pleased to announce that at launch we have Tech Data, Exclusive Networks and Computacenter on board as partners for the Women in Channel campaign.
Firms can only do so much to tackle the industry's pronounced diversity deficit at an individual level.
It is only by coming together to raise awareness and share ideas that the dial can be moved, and we hope the hub can act as a focal point for industry comment on debate on this important topic.
