24 May CRN Women & Diversity in Channel Awards 2022: Nominations Announced
For the 5th year running, Academia the Technology Group are proud and delighted to see so many of our female colleagues nominated for the prestigious CRN Women & Diversity in Channel Awards. This is a further testament to how great our team are and we look forward to bringing home the winners’ trophies, much like last year’s winners: Ashley Messina (Outstanding Returner), Lauren Price (Unsung Hero – Reseller), and Amy Joyce (Highly Commended Rising Star – Reseller), as well as our 2020 winner, Carly Daniel (Unsung Hero – Reseller).
About the Awards
Now in their 5th year, these awards have been relaunched as CRN Women & Diversity in Channel Awards, as they aim to champion not only women but also wider diversity within the industry.
The challenge of increasing diversity in tech is now firmly on the agenda across the UK, but it is far from a solved problem. These special awards aim to champion, recognise and celebrate women and diversity in the channel.
The awards aim to put firms and individuals in the spotlight that are not only tackling gender issues but are making diversity, in all senses, a priority within their business.
Women are still well under-represented across the industry. The award hosts feel that shouting about the accomplishments of women in the channel – not because they are women, but because their accomplishments are worth shouting about – can play an important role in tackling diversity in the channel.
The Women & Diversity in Channel Awards launches with new company categories for 2022 including the Cultural Inclusion Award and the LGBTQ+ Inclusion Award.
They’re also introducing new individual categories including Diversity Champion of the Year and Mental Health Champion of the Year to recognise individuals that have been advocating for these pressing issues and helping to make the IT channel a more inclusive and nurturing place to work.
Drum Roll Please…
The entire Academia team wish our 12 nominees the best of luck – you’re all winners in our eyes already! Our nominees are:
Good luck to you all from the entire Academia team.
