This year, CRN honors nearly 500 women whose channel expertise and vision are deserving of recognition.
CRN is highlighting 30 female executives at solution provider organizations whose insight and influence drive channel success.
CRN gives special recognition to 23 rising-star female executives.
CRN asked the 2016 Women of the Channel to shed a little light on how they strive to achieve an optimal work-life balance.
CRN asked the Women of the Channel honorees of today to offer some advice for the female channel leaders of tomorrow.
CRN asked this year's Women of the Channel to identify their female role models, and their answers were as varied as the honorees themselves.
