We recently shared that we had a record number of our people nominated for a range of categories in the CRN Women & Diversity in Channel Awards 2023.

Surpassing our nominations for 2022, we continue to shine a light on the culture-driven purpose and values we have built over the last three decades. Amplified by the recognition our amazing people received from across the business this year.

This week the final shortlist has been announced, and we are thrilled to share two of our people have been shortlisted:
