NetCarrier Telecom has become a Silver sponsor at the 14th Women in the Channel (WiC) networking event.
During Channel Partners Evolution, the WiCConnect event will be held from 5-8 p.m., September 25, in 18C & D on the 4th floor of the Austin Convention Center.
WiC is a not-for-profit organization dedicated to accelerating the growth of female channel leaders in technology. Its signature events are a mix of peer networking, motivational remarks, professional development and progress report on WiC’s many initiatives.
WiCConnect Austin 2017’s theme, “Lead Through Change,” is all about digital transformation for the channel and its customers. Its members are women in the channel that are either leading or looking for opportunities to lead their teams, departments, divisions or organizations through digital transformation.
Tech leader and best-selling author Sandy Carter, vice president of Amazon Web Services, will deliver the keynote address, entitled Seven Ways to Lead Through Change. Carter, a leading pioneer in the digital business revolution, has been a driving force of innovation at IBM for the last decade. After a career at IBM, she’s now a “newbie” at AWS.
“Women in the Channel’s networking event has become a must-attend for women interested in advancing their telecom and IT careers and businesses, and it would not be possible without the generosity of sponsors like NetCarrier,” said WiC president Hilary Gadda, director of national channel development at TPx Communications. “Our organization relies on the support of companies like NetCarrier that see the value in our educational, mentoring and community outreach programs aimed at empowering women in the channel.”
“I am proud to be part of such an empowering group of women, and I am glad NetCarrier supports and understands the importance of an organization such as Women in the Channel,” added Laura Bella, WIC co-chair of the Membership Committee and sales manager at NetCarrier.
The Women in the Channel Networking Event is free to all WiC members and $20 for non-members.
