100 Powerful Women in Sales – 2023

Celebrating Trailblazing Women in Sales

This year has been incredibly challenging for salespeople in many companies across industries. But because we know that “when the going gets tough, the tough get going,” those who persevered, thought outside the box, and focused on doing right by their customers, are still celebrating wins and closed deals. And many of those salespeople who maneuvered the recent headwinds are amazing women in sales.   

To celebrate this, we created a list of women who are making an impact in the sales field. Not only are they knocking it out of the park when it comes to their specific roles, but they’re also finding success in giving back to other women within our field and working to make sales as a whole better.

And so, for the second year in a row, we’re proud to share that we’ve partnered up with Women in Sales to highlight 100 Powerful Women in Sales. 

You can find the 2022 list here (1-50 / 51-100).

We didn’t want the list to be restricted based on title, so you’ll see folks from the SDR level, all the way to the C-Suite!

Before jumping into how we developed our list, Alexine Mudawar, CEO at Women in Sales, and I wanted to share our perspective on the importance and impact that these women make and why these specific women were selected:

Whether you are seeking inspiration for your own team or are simply curious about who these women are, taking cues from these thought leaders can provide you with valuable insights into how to remain ahead of the curve during times of rapid change.

List methodology

When developing this list of 100 Powerful Women in Sales, it’s not simply who has the most followers. While reach, specifically on LinkedIn, is important, a variety of other criteria go into such a ranking, including:

  • Sharing contextual updates: Whether it’s publishing unique on-topic content or it’s reposting content with additional context, the content needs to be beneficial to their audience. Simply reposting company content isn’t enough.
  • Engagement with sales-focused content: If you’re turning to someone for inspiration, they should be actively engaged with the broader community. Interacting with content –– both passively and actively ––  with likes, and thoughtful comments is imperative.
  • Audience resonance: When these women publish content, are their audiences actively engaging with it? Is it resonating? How about when they comment on other people’s content? Their content –– whether on their profile or when they engage with others’ content –– should resonate with these audiences.
  • Diversity: We are careful to ensure that we have a diverse representation of those individuals whom we highlight. This isn’t limited to those that we name to the list; it’s also important to ensure that they’re involved in conversations with a diverse group of people.

Many lists rely entirely on Twitter (err, X) but, in the B2B world, most people (especially sales individuals) focus their time on LinkedIn. While X allows access to their firehose and therefore a lot of tools utilize that data to determine influence, this list was manually researched and analyzed by both our team and Women in Sales, one profile at a time.

Without delay, and in alphabetical order, here are the 100 powerful women in sales that you need to be following and learning from:
