2023 Women of the Channel Application

2023 Women of the Channel Application Form

Each year, CRN publishes in print and online its Women of the Channel project, recognizing female executives for their accomplishments over the past year and the far-reaching impact they are having on the technology industry going forward. 

From the Women of the Channel list, CRN editors also select 100 executives whose expertise and vision are deserving of recognition as "The Power 100: The Most Powerful Women in the Channel." In addition, the CRN editors select an elite subset, the Power Solution Providers, female executives at solution provider organizations who extend their company's sphere of influence as trusted advisers.

Eligibility: Women must be either an executive in a vendor's channel organization, a solution provider, a distributor or someone who is prominently involved in the IT channel ecosystem who play a role in channel leadership. Applicants who provide incomplete responses may be disqualified.

Women whose duties focus on the U.S., N.A, or Global are eligible to apply. Women whose duties focus on geographies exclusively outside the U.S. are also eligible to apply (i.e. Latin America, EMEA, etc.). 

Applicants must occupy their positions within the channel as of press time to be eligible. 

Methodology: The Women of the Channel are selected based on individual standing within and contributions to the channel organizations at which they work and the channel at large. Consideration was also given to the presence and impact their companies have within the IT channel. Assessments were also based on ongoing feedback throughout the year from solution providers on executives’ effectiveness and visibility, as well as their business and sales impact. Women must meet the requirements of our online application process to be considered. A panel of CRN editors made the final selections.

Publication: Winners will be published online at in May, and a selection of winners will be featured in the June issue of CRN magazine.
