NAWSP Get a Mentor, Be A Mentor

The only international sales organization solely committed to increasing the number of women in corporate sales roles and elevating them into economic and social spheres of influence.


Our Why

Imagine if you were told the only way you could be successful is if you were to act like the opposite sex. For the millions of women sales professionals, this is a reality they face every day. They are subjected to sales techniques created by men, for men, when men made up the majority of the sales force. Fast forward to 2018 and now women make up nearly 31% of the B2B sales force but only have access to male-centric sales methods. NAWSP is on a mission to change this.
