Despite recent heated discussions about the lack of women in tech, we here at LAPTOP know that there are far more women doing important and influential work in technology than is evident from the lineup at TechCrunch Disrupt or most other tech-related conferences. That’s why we’re putting together a list of the most important women in mobile tech.
What are the marks of importance? Notability is a big one, but also a personal actions/activities that influence mobile tech. This includes women spearheading promising start ups, women involved in research and development of important technologies, even women who work within systems to make them more accessible or friendly to those outside of the majority.
Obviously there are a lot of women who fit these descriptions, and I’m sure you can come up with plenty of other criteria for what makes a woman “important” in mobile tech. So we’re inviting our readers to nominate women for our list. Please leave your suggestions in the comments with links, if you have them, to pertinent information about the women you’re nominating. The two main criteria we have is that they should be involved in mobile technologies, and they should be currently active in tech.
