I think it is very likely that you are in a unique situation where you are not facing misogyny in your company in a sales tech role. From the experience of the Code Like A Girl Community and my personal friendships women in tech sales face a similar bias as women in tech. They are often treated like they can’t possibly understand the technology of it enough to sell it.

Not only that but they are working to break into the old boys club of sales. So while I think it is really awesome you have found a role where that isn’t happening, blaming women for not showing up in tech sales is hardly the solution.

Do I think we need to show women that they could be amazing tech sales people? YES.

Do I also think that sales departments need to do more to attract and retain female talent? YES.
