Dell EMC's UK and Ireland channel boss Sarah Shields is the latest luminary to join the judging panel for CRN's inaugural Women in Channel awards.
To be held on October 18th in central London, the WiC awards will recognise the achievements of the UK IT channel's talented female executives and employees. There are also three categories for companies as a whole. The full list of categories can be viewed here.
Shields joins a judging panel that also includes the likes of BT Business Direct's Helen Slinger and Insight's Emma de Sousa. The full line-up can be viewed here.
Shields said: "It is a real honour for me to be part of the judging panel for these new, much deserved awards. Throughout my career I've advocated for a change to take place that champions the role women in technology play - so it is fantastic to see an awards ceremony dedicated to just this. I am looking forward to working with my other judges and wish all contestants the best of luck."
