This incredible online bootcamp is tackling the gender divide in tech sales

By March 24, 2021Events

Did you know that less than 20% of tech sales positions are held by women?

And that figure is even less if you are a woman of colour. TalentMinded wanted to do something to alter these stats, and so they decided to create the Women in Tech Sales Bootcamp.

The Women in Tech Sales Bootcamp was established in 2018 and is a collaboration between TalentMinded Inc., an innovative, global talent acquisition solutions provider and The Revenue University, a leading sales training academy. Since then, they have completed over 6 cohorts, trained over 100 women, hosted over 60 top employers and are now taking the program to more cities across North America.

This industry-vetted, 5-day intense training program helps match women who want to pursue or advance their skills in tech sales with leading organisations looking to tap into a diverse, sales-ready talent pool.

The result? Since its inception, on average, 80% of graduates have found employment within 30 days of completing the program. Impressive stuff, right?

So, what exactly does the program entail?

The Women in Tech Sales (WITS) Bootcamp is an intensive program for women who are looking to pursue a career in tech sales or pivoting into tech sales.

Students learn the sales playbook and the art and science of tech sales. It is a 5-day course, developed by leading professionals, offers modern strategies, tools, and methods that will help excel candidates’ careers.

After the 5 days, participants are left with a deep understanding of the end-to-end B2B SaaS tech sales process, along with access to over 40 coaches, mentors, sales leaders and allies to add to their network.

Along with these important tools, women taking part in the bootcamp will develop confidence in their abilities as the week progresses – it’s a game changing experience that helps unleash true potential!

One of the really special elements of the bootcamp comes on the final day. On day five of the program, participants will take part in virtual speed interview sessions with TalentMinded’s exclusive employer and hiring partners. These sessions will give people the opportunity to meet virtually with potential employers and establish professional connections.

Who is this bootcamp for? If you identify as female and are looking to develop a career or pivot your career into tech sales, then this is for you. Whether you are starting out in your career or looking to make a change – this course will give you the tools to succeed, build your confidence, introduce you to awesome employers and expand your network.
