Elevating Women
in Tech Leadership

“Women belong in all places where decisions are being made.”

Ruth Bader Ginsberg

Why the Tech Industry Needs More Women

 There has been a long-time, significant gender gap in technology leadership roles. Women make up only 16 percent of senior-level roles in the technology industry, and only ten percent of executive-level positions. Moreover, the technology channel ecosystem is a trillion-dollar opportunity and one of the fastest paths to growth for emerging technology companies, yet women are minimally represented. Creating a more inclusive channel economically empowers women and future-proofs the technology ecosystem. WECAN offers advisory, mentorship, and educational programs intended to elevate more women into technology leadership roles.

Closing the Gender Gap in Tech Leadership

Closing the Gender Gap

Fortune 50 tech companies recognize the challenges regarding equitable leadership roles for women and the lack of accessible female roles models. Therefore, a strategic board of executive women with diverse experiences and influence was created to address the disparity of women within the industry.

Hear from Microsoft’s Sherlaender “Lani” Phillips, Vice President, US Channel Sales and Founder of WECAN, about why women leaders are crucial for a company to reach its full potential.
