Inspiring Channel Leaders

ACW’s North Star is helping women advance their channel careers and take on leadership roles. With that in mind, we partnered with channel advisory firm AchieveUnite to give our members executive-level leadership training at exclusive member rates with the ACW ACE Leadership Program. Today, the program is one of the most popular benefits of ACW membership. Classes fill up fast!

ACE Channel Leadership Program

ACE is facilitated by women, for women — we’ve walked in your shoes and understand your challenges and ambitions.


Choose from Two Tracks (or Take Both!)

The ACW ACE Leadership Program has been a huge success, with hundreds of graduates and counting. Based on feedback and popular demand, in 2021, we’ve expanded the program to include two complementary tracks. We’ve nicknamed them “ACE ME” and “ACE WE” because they focus on developing personal leadership skills and organizational leadership skills, respectively. The sessions build on each other but can be taken independently as well.

Here’s What ACW Members Are Saying About ACE ME

“When I started this program, I would never have thought I would get so much out of the eight weeks, but I can tell you they have completely changed my life!”

Erin, Senior Program Manager

“I have learned so much from this course. No one else has ever been able to get through to me the same way that you have. Vital pieces of information that now seem obvious and are essential to career [and] leadership success simply didn’t register prior to your course, such as the importance of soft skills and relationships, for example.”

Rebecca, Product Marketing Manager

“The ACE leadership program is great for any woman in the channel. I truly feel like part of a small community. … I am leaving the program with more confidence in myself and my career in the channel. … Challenging conversations, negotiation and your brand go far beyond who you are as a professional. I now feel empowered and have a clear vision for my future.”

Alyson, Channel Sales Manager

“After eight weeks, I feel more prepared, confident and empowered than ever before, and I know this program will be the springboard for my future success.”

Jamie, Director of Mobility
