Behind an increasing number of devices is a network providing connectivity, and behind that connectivity is a woman driving the innovation -- although that's a number that could use increasing as well.
Like much of the tech world, the Internet of Things lacks in female representation. The industry struggles to both recruit and retain women as they progress through their careers. (See Why Women at Work Get Mired in the Middle.)
That said, there are a number of top women who are helping to drive the technology behind IoT, as well as the business, the relationships and the services. Showcasing their successes -- as the best and brightest minds in IoT and role models for other women -- is one important step to attracting more like-minded females to the field.
In time for next week's Internet of Things World in Dublin, Jeremy Coward, senior editor at IoT World News, has profiled four such women making a difference in IoT in the realms of healthcare, data analytics, finance and more.
Head over to IoT World news to meet the women, all of whom will be speaking at the conference as well: 4 Women Making a Big Difference in the World of IoT.
