Cloud Girls is excited to announce the winners of our seventh annual Cloud Girls Rising Awards!  

The Cloud Girl Rising awards were created to honor women in the service provider, cloud provider and channel community who have demonstrated innovation, thought leadership and proactive solution development in the cloud and next gen tech space in 2021 as well as to inspire more women to step forward and follow their example.   This year’s awards were given to seven women – one Visionary, three Trailblazers and three Rising Stars.

“Our judging panel was blown away by the caliber of the nominees this year and felt we needed to expand the number of winners to recognize all of these standout performers.  The seven winners of the 2022 Cloud Girls Rising Awards are exceptionally talented individuals who have demonstrated leadership and innovation driving cloud solutions at their companies, in the channel community and within the tech industry,” said Cloud Girls’ Co-founder Jo Peterson, Vice President of Cloud Services for Clarify360. “We’re thrilled that this award recognizes and celebrates women at all stages of their career.  Each one of these accomplished women has demonstrated notable innovation and leadership and will continue to be women to watch in the future.  We are excited to recognize their achievements.”
