Seismic Unveils Inclusive New Sales Enablement Training Program

Seismic, a sales enablement platform provider, partnered with the Sales Enablement Society and SV Academy, a business development platform, to launch Enableship, a program designed to foster an inclusive community that provides sales enablement training and opportunities for underrepresented groups.

The network seeks to supply entry-level candidates with technical maps and leadership training courses to help them learn the necessary sales skills to enter and thrive in the workforce. Candidates can also obtain apprenticeships and graduate into full-time roles at partner companies for greater placement rates.

“The enablement space is booming, and yet, it is disproportionately white compared to the U.S. population,” said Donna DeBerry, Seismic Vice President, Global Inclusion, in a statement. “With SV Academy, the community from Sales Enablement Society and our hiring partners, Seismic is not only helping fill the tens of thousands of open enablement roles, but also taking action to close the wealth and education gap.”

Enableship is the first program introduced after Seismic’s acquisition of Lessonly, which allowed the company to enhance its sales enablement training capabilities for a wider range of audiences. This aligns with Seismic and DeBerry’s focus on diversity and inclusion in B2B, as they are now able to build more programs like Enableship to help marginalized communities.
