Back in October, leading IT channel publication CRN hosted its inaugural Women in Channel Awards. Five Logicalis UK employees were shortlisted, with two going on to win their categories! And now, five are on the A-List!
Determined to continue their efforts to recognise the individuals who are influencing, challenging and reshaping the tech industry, CRN have since launched the first Women in Channel A-List. Modelled on the annual who’s who of the channel, which this year included both our MD and COO, it’s described as an annual guide that features the wave makers of those working in the channel. We’re proud to announce that five of our employees have made it onto the list, giving their opinions on how the industry can become more diverse, ways to encourage more women into the IT sector, and their career top tips.
Andreea Ceasar, Marketing Campaign Manager at Logicalis UK and an A-Lister said ‘no matter how you look at it, there is a painful gender deficit in the UK IT channel. Any initiative that tries to bridge the gender gap, as the Women in Channel A-list does, should be supported by the entire industry. Women in tech need to be heard and seen, because only with real examples can we change mentalities and misconceptions. Being a very small part of this movement feels really good.”
We’d like to congratulate all of our A-Listers who continue to rework the tech sector and encourage other women to join the industry:
- Andreea Ceasar – Marketing Campaign Manager
- Jane Emerson – Account Manager
- Kate Dadlani – Chief Information Security Officer
- Natasha Darbyshire – Head of IT
- Natalie Matthews – Chief Operating Officer
