How Autum Grimm is Living the ACW Pledge: Women Supporting Women

Aug 10, 2023

Alliance of Channel Women is highlighting women who are Living the ACW Pledge: Women Supporting Women. We’re seeking nominations from the channel community for women – from the mailroom to the boardroom – who embody the oath in their words and actions.

Autumn Grimm, Co-Founder and Chief Revenue Officer at PartnerTap, was nominated by Jaquelin Jenkins, Global Senior Ecosystem Advisor at PartnerTap, and Brooke Kochman, Director of Business Development at PartnerTap.

In what way(s) is your nominee an example of Living the ACW Advocacy Pledge of women supporting women?

Jaquelin: Autum has done a fantastic job as Co-Founder of PartnerTap with Cassandra Gholston. They have created the FEMPIRE, an ecosystem of women executives in our space that is inclusive and inspiring. 80% of our company is female!

Brooke: She supports all women and goes above and beyond for everyone on her team!

What is a specific example of what she did for you and when it happened?

Jaquelin: Autum hired me in June, and I couldn’t be more impressed with how she handles her employees, customers and associates. She is 100% in so many different fashions!

Brooke: I went on vacation, and she said, “I hope you have the best vacation. I wish you peace, rejuvenation and honest-to-goodness self-care. Know that I am going to watch your deals like a mother hen. Have fun, see you on the other side!”

What impact did her action have on you and/or your career?

Jaquelin: Always wanting others to be themselves, do their best, and lean in as much as possible. The environment that she has created for her employees is second to none. I feel blessed to not only know Autum, but to see work for her feels like a dream! She is the definition of women supporting women!

Brooke: She hired me when I did not come from a computer software background.
