Sistas in Sales: How Chantel George Built a Community for Women of Color in Sales
Crunchbase Spotlight is a series that celebrates diversity and inclusion in entrepreneurship, venture capital, and tech by profiling people of color, women, and individuals who identify as LGBTQ. Meet Chantel George, Founder of Sistas in Sales, who built an organization for women of color in sales from scratch that does all three of the critical tasks above. This was her first time picking a sales role by choice versus out of necessity. A regular attendee at events, George began to analyze how organizers put them together. “I wanted to create that sense of pride in the [sales] career for Black women and the sense of exclusivity,” she said.
