Sometimes the greatest success a woman can achieve is more than the
title she holds. In the world of M2M, you will find a group of tenacious
women who are compelled to mentor the next generation of females as
technology leaders. On Monday, Feb. 18, 2013, Connected World
magazine announced the inaugural list of its annual Women of M2M. The
women selected were honored during a ceremony, sponsored by Cycle30,
held at Joe's Seafood and Prime Steak in Chicago, Ill.
The Women of M2M is a diverse group, made up of females who have been
visionaries in their respective companies. And there is a common thread
among them. The desire to show other women how they can find the same
success while continuing to be successful in driving innovation forward.
Each woman shows true spirit and proves there is no magic to success. It
really comes down to sheer determination and perseverance. Each woman
has demonstrated exemplary leadership and accelerated the growth of M2M
while inspiring other future M2M industry advocates.
"Success is not just about the bigger title. At this point in their
life, for the Women of M2M, it's about enjoying what they do and giving
something back. It's helping other women enjoy the same sense of
accomplishment," says Peggy Smedley, editorial director, Connected
World magazine and president, Specialty Publishing Co. "Each of the
women being recognized has used her passion and commitment to propel
this great industry forward. And with their guidance, those following in
their footsteps will continue this tradition."
The 2013 Women of M2M are:
Sun Yafang, Chairwoman of the Board, Huawei Technologies
Statistically, finding women in the technology industry sounds like a
daunting task when in the United States the number of women employed in
the computing and IT field is declining. However, elsewhere in the
country's workforce, women are on the rise. Previously, there have been
just 12 Fortune 500 companies and 25 Fortune 1000 companies in which
women have held the role of CEO or president. These numbers have now
reached 21 and 42, respectively.
"The Women of M2M have played such a significant role in where we find
M2M and connected devices today, helping to guide a young industry
toward its maturity," says Mike Carrozzo, chief editor, Connected
World magazine. "But these are accomplishments that transcend
gender. What those recognized in our Apr/May issue have helped to
achieve is an inspiration to any who have witnessed it."
