On Tuesday in San Francisco, Broadcom Corp. (Nasdaq: BRCM) gave reporters a preview of its International CES. Trying to play off our love of gadgets, they called it a "geek peek."
Wirelessness was the prevalent theme. Location-based technologies and so-called 5G wireless (Broadcom's nicely confusing term for 802.11ac Wi-Fi) are going to be among the CES highlights for the chip maker. So is near-field communications, which Broadcom thinks is on the verge of big things. (See Broadcom Thinks NFC's Time Is Nearing.)

Understanding the full experience of women in technology requires starting at the collegiate level (or sooner) and studying the technologies women are involved with, company cultures they're part of and personal experiences of individuals.
During this WiC radio show, we will talk with Nicole Engelbert, the director of Research & Analysis for Ovum Technology and a 23-year telecom industry veteran, about her experiences and perspectives on women in tech. Engelbert covers infrastructure, applications and industries for Ovum, but she is also involved in the research firm's higher education team and has helped colleges and universities globally leverage technology as a strategy for improving recruitment, retention and graduation performance.
She will share her unique insight into the collegiate level, where women pursuing engineering and STEM-related degrees is dwindling. Engelbert will also reveal new, original Ovum research on the topics of artificial intelligence, the Internet of Things, security and augmented reality, as well as discuss what each of those technologies might mean for women in our field. As always, we'll also leave plenty of time to answer all your questions live on the air and chat board.
