It’s now even easier to enter the three company-wide categories within Women in Channel Awards

Vendors, disties and resellers with a strong record when it comes to gender diversity could walk away with a CRN Women in Channel (WiC) award in October.

This year we have made the three company-wide categories for WiC more accessible by allowing firms to enter later - and in just one click - after the completion of the nomination process.

Recent research by CRN found that gender pay gaps in our industry continues to hover around 20 per cent, and that women make up - on average - just 27 per cent of the workforce in our sector.

If you work for a firm that has a strong track record in recruiting, retaining and promoting female staff - or is playing an active role in community outreach in this area - why not enter one of the trio of company-wide categories this year?

Women in Channel has a focus on gender, but the topic of diversity more broadly will be considered in our flagship Diversity Employer of the Year category.

There are also categories covering community outreach projects, and gender parity.

View the three categories here.

While the deadline for the individual categories remains Friday, 19 June, firms entering the company-wide awards have until 29 June to complete their questionnaires. The event itself will be held on 15 October.

Good luck.
