“For quite some time, several powerful women from our team at RapidScale have been ACW members and have been active in the professional development programs the organization offers,” said Lisa Majdi, Cox Business Executive Director of Marketing. “We’re so excited to support a successful organization that creates opportunities for channel women through learning, mentoring, and volunteering.”

“ACW has been led by volunteers from day one and is literally a labor of love. Their dedication is matched and multiplied by the financial support of our generous sponsors,” said ACW Board Member and Sponsorship Committee Chair, Carolee Cannata, Senior Channel Marketing Manager at Mavenir. “Thanks to companies like RapidScale, we provide not only ACWConnect Live! bi-annual networking events but also ongoing education, leadership, and mentoring programs.
