90% male + 100% white...

Really bummed to see Chili Piper's AE of the year contest fail to celebrate diversity at all. Not sure if this is due to how they structured the contest, how they evaluated the submissions, or the industry's overall lack of supporting and empowering diverse sales professionals, but it's an all around bummer.

Interesting. I wonder how many women applied.

Apparently the nominations reflected the applications.

I think it's pretty disappointing that no one looked at the list before posting it. How are more diverse groups supposed to get into sales or any kind of profession if they can't see a successful path?

Or when they saw that not a lot of women or people of color were being nominated they did something to try to rectify the situation.
