Award Honors Women Who Are ‘Living the Pledge’: Women Supporting Women
ORANGE, California, September 12, 2023 – The Alliance of Channel Women, a not-for-profit organization dedicated to accelerating the growth of female channel leaders in technology, announced today that Holly Hunt, National Sales Director of Indirect Channels at Comcast Business and Chair of ACW’s Communications Committee, was selected as the group’s Big Impact Winner for Q2 2023. Honorees are chosen quarterly by ACW from nominees who are Living the ACW Advocacy Pledge: Women Supporting Women.
The ACW Advocacy Pledge Program was started in 2020 by the ACW DEI Committee to encourage women to support each other. The ACW Advocacy Pledge is “Behind Every Successful Woman is a Community of Successful Women Who Have Her Back.”
Hunt, the Big Impact Winner for Q2 2023, was nominated by Molly Codd, Channel Manager at Innovative Business Solutions.
“[Holly] has been an amazing support system and leader for me and many other women around us,” said Codd. “Whenever I have a complex issue or need sound advice, I can call or email Holly; she is always there to help find a solution. She is truly a shining star and a fantastic example of ACW and what it stands for! Holly has been my mentor since I came over to Innovative, which is a little over a year! She has taken me under her wing and provided sound advice, helping me get involved with ACW, where I’ve started a local chapter. She has helped me gain confidence in myself and being a woman in this very male-dominated industry. Which I believe we are changing!”
“She continues to support women from all areas. She is part of the ACW community and serves on the Communications Committee. She organizes and plans events and inspires others to join. She is a mentor to many other women in our industry. She has a podcast and continues to be a shining bright star for women in the channel and out.”
