Alliance of Channel Women, a not-for-profit organization dedicated to accelerating the growth of female channel leaders in technology, is stepping up its focus on advocacy and education for diversity, equity and inclusion with the formation of a new ACW DEI Committee.
The ACW DEI Committee, which supersedes the ACW Advocacy Committee, was created in response to the growing needs of ACW members and the channel community for DEI leadership and education amid heightened racial tension and civil unrest since summer 2020.
ACW DEI Committee seeks to create and curate education and other programs to help technology businesses recognize diversity as beneficial, nurture talent and advocate for individual growth. The ultimate goal is to create a tech channel environment where everyone – no matter their gender, race, ethnicity, age, or sexual orientation – is valued and included.
In addition to Chair Wiley, the ACW DEI Committee is led by two Co-chairs: Jacqueline Steinberg, Partner Development Manager at AT&T Alliance Channel and Kelli McMillan, National Partner Manager at Five9. They are joined by former ACW Advocacy Committee Members and a growing list of ACW members.
