How Bita Milanian is Living the ACW Pledge: Women Supporting Women

Mar 4, 2021

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.

Bita Milanian, Senior Vice President of Global Marketing at Ribbon, was nominated by Cynthia Artin, President of Artin Arts.

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

Bita has been a supporter of women in business and girls who aspire to become global leaders. She is tirelessly contributing her time, speaking out, writing, publishing, and serving as an example to women globally.

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

I have worked alongside Bita for twenty years. There are hundreds of examples, but perhaps most inspiring is her promoting women’s work in Afghanistan since 2011 by publishing articles, attending their events, and donating time and money. I am happy to share links to some of the beautiful stories she has shared over the years.

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

Bita inspires so many other women and me in the technology, telecom, and philanthropic domains. She has quietly supported hundreds of women behind the scenes while publicly sharing stories of perseverance, hope, success, authenticity, and human kindness.
