How Marcia Dempster is Living the ACW Pledge: Women Supporting Women

Jun 22, 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.

Marcia Dempster, Senior Director of Channel Sales at Keeper Security, was nominated by Cait Hassett, Channel Engagement Manager at Blackpoint Cyber.

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

Marcia lives to support other women! In every meeting with her, Marcia will name every woman who helped make something possible, give all the kudos, and lift others before herself. In her personal life, she is a natural-born networker who always wants to connect you with amazing people in her networks, especially women. And she always follows through. She is a woman of her word and will do what she says.

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

Marcia nominated me to win an award for my channel marketing projects, and I won. She encouraged me to go full steam into the channel from there, and when I was looking for a channel role, she connected me with anyone and everyone she could think of who could help me.

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

Marcia is the reason I’m in the channel. She is a friend, mentor, and advocate. My life wouldn’t be the same without her.
