I was able to contribute to the recent Sales Hacker post Top Communities for Women in Sales and Revenue written by Sales Hacker founder Max Altshuler.
Max is a strong ally in the B2B sales world for diversity and inclusion. From the very first events that Sales Hacker put on six years ago, Max was asking for names of strong women keynoters and diverse speakers to change the face of the existing sales conference world which was full of all-male lineups on main stages everywhere.
Sales Hacker events truly changed the landscape for sales conferences. They also did not bring in speakers who would “sell from the stage” as other conferences did –
Every now and then there would be one woman who’d speak as a communication expert or would be a CMO. It took a while for any sort of balance of women to men on B2B sales main stages. I’d say it is still something to watch.
Take a look at the groups mentioned in the article and get involved!
