Katie Cook, Senior Director, Sales Strategy at Salesforce and WISL Forum Grad!

Recently, I had the amazing opportunity to be a participant in the IES Women in Sales Leadership Forum led by the incomparable Gina Stracuzzi. This program not only focuses on developing leadership skills, but it provides ways to tackle unique issues facing women in sales everyday. The insight I gained from listening to amazing speakers like Tamara Greenspan, Gigi Schumm, Queirra Fenderson, PCC, Kyla O’Connell, and Anita Nielsen taught me so much about myself and how I lead others in the sales environment. I cannot recommend this program enough! HUGE thank you to Rob Stein for being an amazing ally to women in sales and advocating for Salesforce’s participation with this forum.

Women in Sales Leadership Forum

WISL Elevation Conference Speakers

Gina Stracuzzi

Gina Stracuzzi, Conference Chairperson, CoFounder & Director, IES Women in Sales Leadership Forum

Gina Stracuzzi is a leader in the Women in Sales movement. Gina’s career in sales started very early in life when she would “pitch” her parents on important issues like her version of how grandma’s vase ended up on the floor in a million pieces. She would routinely beat out her “competition” (aka as her six siblings) for best story-telling in a dramatic role. Throughout her 20+ years in sales and marketing in the U.S., Europe and emerging economies, Gina has continued to employ those same story-telling skills to help women entrepreneurs and small businesses, navigate the waters between strategic communication and business development to bring about smart growth. She is the host of the Tuesday at noon IES Women in Sales webinar.

Teresa Carlson

Opening Keynote, What’s Ahead for Women in Sales and The Companies That Employ Them, Presented by Teresa Carlson, Trailblazing C-Suite Woman Sales Executive

For more than 20+ years Teresa has led massive sales organizations at Microsoft, AWS and most recently at, Splunk.

Jan Fox

Keynote Panel Discussion Moderated by Hang Black, VP of Revenue Enablement at Juniper Networks | Transformational Executive Fueling the Sales Addiction | Author | Fierce Business Woman and Advocate

Over the last few months, IES hosted a number of roundtable discussions with industry leaders and Hang will lead an important and timely discussion around the impact of women leaving the workplace in record numbers, it’s impact on their ability to reach their DEI&B goals, and ultimately on their ability to attract and retain women sales leaders. From the discussions, IES authored an executive report, What Does Equity and Inclusion Look Like Post Exodus. The discussion, like the report will consider both the challenges and opportunities for all involved.
