Winners to Be Announced at ACWConnect LIVE! September 13 at Channel Futures MSP Summit in Orlando
ORANGE, Calif., June 6, 2022 – The Alliance of Channel Women, a not-for-profit organization dedicated to accelerating the growth of female channel leaders in technology, announced today a call for nominations for the 2022 ACW LEAD Awards, an initiative that recognizes exceptional women in the channel. The organization is accepting nominations for the ACW LEAD Award now through June 30, 2022.
In its sixth year, the ACW LEAD Award is presented annually to celebrate women who are courageous, creative, collaborative, connected and confident in advancing channel careers. It also seeks to inspire other channel women to follow their lead.
Winners of the award will be honored at a ceremony during the Alliance of Channel Women ACWConnect Live! Networking Event on September 13 during Channel Futures MSP Summit 2022. The MSP Summit is colocated with the Channel Partners Leadership Summit and Women’s Leadership Summit, which features ACW members. (NOTE: Nominees must be present to win the LEAD Award.)
“Five years after ACW created the LEAD Award to honor women in the channel who are stand-out leaders, I’m proud to look over the list of remarkable women we’ve recognized to date – from business owners and channel chiefs to channel managers and partner support executives,” said ACW President Cassie Jeppson, Director of North America Channel Programs for Lenovo. “What’s sets them apart? Their willingness to step up and lead, no matter the challenge or situation. Leaders today need to be bolder and braver than ever; we’re looking forward to discovering more exceptional channel leaders in 2022.”
Nominations will be accepted through June 30, 2022, via an online application at https://allianceofchannelwomen.org/lead-2022. Nominations may come from third parties or candidates themselves. All applicants will be required to demonstrate leadership and innovation in the channel as well as support, advocacy and mentorship of women in the channel.
Winners will be selected from among the nominees by a vote of the ACW Board of Directors and Awards Committee.
