Our just concluded Twitter chat on the issue of women and leadership roles in IT was one of our more engaging and eye opening Twitter chats.

We’d like to thank all those who participated in the conversation by contributing their insights, as well as candid and informed comments.

For this week’s Follow Friday we’re featuring some of the chat participants.

We’ll start off with our two guest experts:

Jennifer Johnson is senior director of marketing and North American marketing strategy at computer and technology product distributor Ingram Micro. She specializes in strategic marketing for both B2B and B2C, as well as customer and competitive intelligence.

“Gender isn’t the issue – it’s about balancing the gender scales in specific fields and levels,” says Johnson.


Corinne Sharp is president of Sharp Perspective, a channel strategy business transformation firm. Sharp was also the head of the reseller channel and distribution division at Microsoft Canada. @gailmercermac “#CDNWomen don’t have to BE like men. Celebrate differences, ensure we are focused on driving results,” says Sharp. @CorinneSharp
