I am so proud of Emily and Lizzie. They are both high performing, authentic women who are key to our team. It is important that we, as a business, continue to champion women in leadership roles and women who want to consistently progress. Participating in the WISA allows us to do this and inspire and support the talented women within our industry. Regardless of the outcome of the shortlist I would like to congratulate Lizzie and Ems for their well-deserved recognition.
Why a Women In Sales Awards?
Encouraging diversity in the workplace is increasingly seen as a way of making companies stronger in the modern business environment. One key area of diversity is encouraging women to enter and excel in traditionally male-dominated fields. Sales is one such arena.
Sales is the lifeblood of every company. However, it is still very heavily male-dominated. The Women in Sales Awards has been created to bring a greater awareness of the need for gender diversity in sales and in executive leadership teams, as well as help grow the pipeline of sales talent. The awards are an opportunity to celebrate the achievements of women in sales roles.
