The women in wearable tech 2015
A great deal of time and money is currently being funnelled into plans and programmes created to empower young women to pursue a career in technology.
Although extremely valuable, there’s anything more inspiring to a younger generation than seeing female leaders, designers and developers making a huge mark on their respective industries day in and day out.
And here at Wareable we’re particularly interested in exploring which women are focusing on making wearable technologies smarter and, well, more wearable than ever before.
Although you could argue that women don’t necessarily need different kinds of tech products to men, it’s short-sighted to overlook the fact that for any product, service or idea to penetrate a diverse and mainstream market, it needs a diverse team fuelling it. A team full of people that bring all kinds of different experiences and opinions to the table, which rather critically includes a mix of both male and female voices every step of the way.
