Oct. 20, 2015 – Santa Ana, California – Women in the Channel (WiC), a not-for-profit organization dedicated to accelerating the growth of female channel leaders in technology, announced that it is launching its Outreach Program to develop strategic partnerships with women’s groups, technology industry associations and enterprises, as well as educational institutions that are interested in joining WiC to promote women’s careers in the technology industry.
The WiC Outreach Program has a two-fold mission to establish relationships with the business community and educational institutions. WiC leaders anticipate forming two subcommittees to develop and execute programs targeted to each group.
- The Business-to-Business Committee will focus on building relationships with other women’s groups, IT and telecom industry associations and leading enterprise.
- The Education Committee will develop and rollout WiC’s career counseling program to elementary and secondary schools and colleges.
“We have a vision for the Outreach Program, now we need to develop the tactics and assemble a strong team to carry that out,” said WiC Co-President Nancy Ridge, vice president of Telecom Brokers. “To reach our goals, we will need to mobilize a lot of energetic women and men across the country. We welcome all interested parties to join us in making a difference for women in starting and advancing their careers in the high-tech industry.”
About Women in the Channel (WiC)
Established in 2010, Women in the Channel’s mission is collaboration through Identity and Relationships to grow business. WiC is a grassroots organization made up of women who are in leadership, ownership and revenue generating roles in the alternate sales channel sector of the telecommunications industry. Month after month, these women are responsible for generating sales for their companies and creating wealth for their families. WiC members are wives and mothers and sisters, and a high percentage of us are the main breadwinners in our families. WiC brings together this group because in an industry that is growing, expanding and changing the number of women at such levels is not matching that growth.
