In August, having just finished up my fifth B2B SaaS startup as a marketing leader, I became increasingly passionate about how I could make more of a difference for all the amazing women I’ve had the pleasure of working with and mentoring throughout my career. I began discussing the idea with other talented women leaders to see how we might band together to help elevate women in sales and marketing.
In our discussions it became clear that we all saw a real need to address the lack of mentorship opportunities, diversity in the boardroom, and support needed to elevate women in their careers. I was overwhelmed with the positive responses and a resounding “absolutely” when asking if anyone was interested in joining me to make a difference.
Fast-forward a few months, I am proud to share that, along with my founding female sales and marketing leaders, we have launched Women in Revenue. Our mission: to provide mentorship, education, and networking opportunities to advance women’s careers.
We are excited to be hosting our first Women in Revenue event in January at no other than the gorgeous, exclusive, and notoriously male-centric Wingtip club in San Francisco. The topic for our inaugural event will cover the recently passed California legislation banning all-male boards in publicly traded companies in the state, and discuss what it takes for women to get a seat at the table.
