Women in Wireless Mission To empower and develop female leaders in mobile and digital media. We do this through leadership development, mentoring, inspirational series of panels and webinars, job boards,philanthropic support for relevant charities and networking events.
Our HistoryWomen in Wireless was created by a small group of femalebusiness leaders who consistently found themselves sharingideas & strategies amongst a sea of men at tech conferences.They started to formalize their efforts in 2009 by formingcommittee called Women in Wireless within the MobileMarketing Association, which would both support and developfemale leaders in the mobile industry.The group attracted such a large membership base that itdecided to form a non-profit corporation in 2011.Today the group has about 2000 members, consisting ofentrepreneurs, senior executives, and those in junior levelsthat seek our support.
