GoTo Celebrates 2024 CRN Women of the Channel Winners

GoTo Celebrates 2024 CRN Women of the Channel Winners.

At a company where core values include “be real, think big, move fast, keep growing, and customer obsessed” it is no surprise that great leaders and boundary pushers emerge. In an industry where only ~27% of the workforce are women, GoTo employs more than the industry average of women—from individual contributors all the way up to executive leadership teams. It is important to recognize and celebrate women who are making great strides and significant contributions in the tech industry. The Women of the Channel award, presented by CRN®, a brand of The Channel Company is one group that continues to honor individuals with their Women of the Channel award.

GoTo, for the second year in a row, boasts 8 CRN Women of the Channel winners. These women represent the best minds from North America, Brazil, Europe, and Australia and bring creativity, unique marketing and sales strategies, and leadership to foster and grow a strong partner network.

To learn a bit more about each of our winners, we asked them about their proudest moment of the last year and their current “GoTo” plan to celebrate this recognition! Check out what our leaders are thinking:
