The event will be held on Sept. 15, from 5-8 p.m., in room 102 at the Hynes Convention Center in Boston – the night before the full Cloud Partners Conference & Expo kicks off.
The LIPSTICK award recognizes women who maintain WiC values, including leadership, integrity and passion – both at work and on a personal level. The WiC board of directors selects the winner from nominations through WiC membership.
“As an organization seeking to inspire, uplift and celebrate women in technology, WiC’s LIPSTICK Award is the embodiment of just that,” said Nancy Ridge, WiC president and vice president of Telecom Brokers. “The LIPSTICK award is truly special, as it is bestowed upon someone who embodies all of the qualities that the award represents, including leadership not only the industry, but also in the communities she touches.”
WiC presented its first LIPSTICK Award to Bita Milanian, senior vice president of marketing communications at GENBAND, in 2014. Milanian is a founding member as well as a current board member for WiC.
The Women in the Channel Networking Event is open to all women who attend Cloud Partners. It is free for all WiC members and $20 for non-members. Click here to register for the event and/or to become a WiC member. Register for Cloud Partners here.
