Community for women of color in sales and business
Sistas in Sales, founded in 2018 by Chantel George, is a community for women of color in sales and business. Its mission is to build a community for black women sales professionals to network, advance their careers and most importantly, find sisterhood. Chantel created an environment where other women of color in sales positions would be welcomed, motivated and inspired by each other. Where together they could dispel the “old boys club” that currently exists in institutions today and show the world that women of color are not only powerhouse sales women, but are out there cashing checks, moving up the ladder and living their best life. Chantel states, “Those are not the narratives we see in the media, and I have made it my purpose to change that. Sistas In Sales LLC, is the first community of it’s kind for women of color in professional sales, and we provide the safe haven necessary, along with the sisterhood and access to successful women of color that are at the highest echelon of their career.” Chantel celebrated her idea coming into fruition by hosting an intimate dinner/ soft launch party entitled, “A Seat at the Table” on the evening of Thursday, April 26th 2018.
