The emergence of outsourcing as a leading business strategy means businesses more than ever are looking to trusted advisors to help them sort out what IT needs they can meet in-house vs. outsource and women are excellent at listening and gathering resources to answer those questions. As our industry shifts to true convergence utilizing multiple providers crossing the old traditional network vs. hardware vs. software lines, women are uniquely positioned to use our collaborative instincts to discover and implement the new changes. Taking a leadership role in pioneering these solutions will help women advance their own businesses or be recognized for advancement within the corporate structure.

That’s why JSA has teamed with Women in the Channel to bring a unique program to Telecom Exchange NYC focused on advancing women in telecom and IT careers. The 2-hour breakfast (8 AM – 10 AM – in the Library) will offer female attendees an opportunity to learn strategies for building their confidence and connections to position them for leadership.

This interactive session will include an inspirational keynote, brainstorming, group discussions, live polling, suggested actions and networking – all designed to promote self-reflection, dispel myths, showcase successful women and suggest next steps for a more fulfilling career in telecom and IT.
