/UCW/ LOS ANGELES, CA – SalesOps Central is taking steps to tackle the gender equality issues in tech by providing free sales management training and peer support for female leaders in venture-backed SaaS firms.
Sales Ops Central has announced the availability of free SaaS sales management training for emerging female sales leaders. Women accepted into the scholarship program are invited to attend a 2-day bootcamp covering the foundations of sales leadership, followed by participation in an alumni network with hundreds of peers.
“2017 was a watershed year for bringing awareness of systemic issues in diversity & inclusion within the tech industry and we decided to do what we can to turn this situation around. We feel we can have impact by supporting women with greater access to peer networks and to accelerate promotions through education,” stated Matt Cameron, Managing Partner, SalesOps Central.
Cameron is one of the Salesforce.com diaspora, an organization where he was inspired by the power of community and inclusion. In 2017 he decided to reserve 10% of all seats in the SaaSy Sales Management ‘Frontline’ training for emerging female leaders as scholarship places. Women are nominated by former program participants and the venture community alike.
“I have enjoyed the good fortune of a broad global network via my time working at Salesforce and Yammer, which is something that I want to provide for emerging female leaders through our SaaSy Sales Management network,” commented Cameron. Operating internationally, the program is coming to Los Angeles for the first time in March, which adds to peer networks in San Francisco, New York, London and Chicago.
Women working in venture-backed SaaS startups who wish to be considered for the scholarship should touch base here. Criteria for selection is working for a firm with fewer than 100 employees and be leading a team of salespeople in a SaaS business.
