CINCINNATI, OHIO – March 12, 2019 — Powernet, Enabling you to connect, announced that it is a Silver sponsor at the annual Alliance of Channel Women ACWConnect Live!

ACWConnect Live! is a high-energy forum that fosters collaboration and inspiration. As with every event, we'll start our evening with cocktails and networking, followed by a program featuring channel leaders talking about hot topics.

This year’s event theme is “Shift, Disrupt, Impact”. As women, we've experienced the power being part of a collective group, of driving change on a national and global level. ACW now invites you to focus your attention on driving change on a personal and professional level. Shift your thinking about what's possible for your life and career. Disrupt the routines that are holding you back and keeping you from moving forward. Impact your career path in positive ways.

“Alliance of Channel Women events would not be possible without the generosity of sponsors like Powernet,” said ACW President Stacy Conrad, Director of Channel Sales at TPx Communications. “We sincerely appreciate the efforts of companies like Powernet that help to shine on a spotlight on our industry’s hard-working women.”
