VIENNA, Va. — March 31, 2023 — The Institute of Excellence in Sales (IES), an organization that helps employers around the globe attract, retain, motivate, and elevate top-tier sales talent, announced the first companies to receive its new Premier Women in Sales Employer (PWISE) designation. The PWISE designation was developed to highlight companies that have a track record of attracting and retaining top tier female sales talent. The announcement comes as National Women's History Month comes to a close.
The companies achieving the designation are:
These companies are included in the new PWISE Guide and website the IES launched today.
“The IES is the Center of Excellence for corporate women in sales best practices and as such, we are excited to help high-performing women in sales professionals identify and connect with employers that have their best interests at hand,” said Fred Diamond, Cofounder and President of the Institute for Excellence in Sales. “The PWISE designation was developed to showcase companies that understand what’s needed to be an exemplary employer and have a track record of executing.”
"Carahsoft is excited that the IES has launched this designation and program and that we were recognized as a foundational PWISE company,” said Carahsoft Vice President of Sales, Maryam Emdadi. “We’ve created many internal initiatives to help women achieve more from their careers and look forward to continuing to advance in this regard."
Premier Women in Sales Employers were selected by an independent panel of judges for their efforts to support the career growth of women in sales. Judging criteria included flexible work schedules, recognition programs, policies and cultures that allow women to flourish and succeed. The IES will distribute the guide to major career service organizations and recruiters as well as to universities and professional organizations serving career sales professionals.
”The IES will work with the PWISE companies to develop industry-wide best practices to help elevate women in sales in business-to-business enterprises,” said Gina Stracuzzi, IES Women in Sales Program Director. “The IES is committed to helping companies advance their Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) program initiatives.”
