Each year comes with its own challenges, but 2022 might be one of the most tumultuous in recent memory. The events in years prior preceding were rare, as our world was impacted by a global pandemic and sociopolitical unrest. The aftershock affected many in their careers and family life, saying nothing of the mental and emotional toll taken.
Our Women in Revenue Q4 event allowed our members to come together with a panel of experts to weigh in on our shared challenges over the past year. Burnout was a common theme, particularly for women balancing their professional goals with keeping up with family responsibilities. Concerns around inflation and a potential recession were top of mind as well, considering 66 percent of Americans feel a major recession could be coming within the next year.
Employees and customers alike are being asked to do more with less. This has increased the importance of agility, as staffing challenges and layoffs impact a range of industries. From economic concerns to daily stresses, there’s no doubt that the past 12 months or so have been a struggle for many.
At the same time, we’re poised to see positive changes in the year ahead: more women are entering leadership positions and inflation is expected to cool down. The number of women holding leadership roles in Fortune 500 companies has reached an all-time high, and our event speakers predict greater recognition of and investment in professionals holding customer-centric positions that have become more closely tied to revenue than ever.

- Interactive, role-specific breakout sessions to discuss perspectives on 2022 and predictions for 2023

During Dreamforce 2022, Women in Revenue joined forces with Demandbase for a fun and enlightening evening event at the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art. Hundreds of people converged on this iconic location to meet with like-minded revenue leaders and delight in contemporary art galleries, craft cocktails and insightful conversations.
In addition to the networking, Women in Revenue pulled together a panel session with top executives and allies to discuss the importance of mentorship and allyship to power forward with a stronger sense of confidence and support…
A Dynamic Due of Two Ships: Mentorship and Allyship
Whether you think the glass ceiling is broken or not, one thing remains certain – women supporting women and allies supporting women makes all the difference to our individual and collective success. In a world where the right relationships can determine your access, inclusion, belonging and promotion the “ships” of Mentorship and Allyship are the vessels that will carry you over the life of your career and are even more vital for women and other underrepresented groups.
The person in your ear and corner along with the power of an ally in the room using their power for you when you aren’t even present is key to every woman navigating the ladder! Just knowing she’s not alone as she works her way up is rocket fuel for forward momentum.
