Carol Stream, Ill. – May 23, 2019 – It takes a lot to be a woman in technology and it takes even more to lead day-to-day. And it’s for this reason it’s time to recognize successful women in technology. Connected World will be celebrating the achievements of women, for the seventh year in a row at its annual WoM2M Gala.

The Women of M2M and IoT dinner, sponsored by MultiTech, will bring together women in technology, from all industries and from across the U.S. The event will take place at 6:30 PM on June 6 in Rosemont, Ill., at Carlucci’s and all are welcome to attend.

The Women of M2M and IoT list is comprised of some of the most powerful, smart, tech savvy, and successful women in the technology sector. These women are selected because they each bring a unique lens to their respective companies that helps push connected technologies forward.

“As the tech space grows so do the number of women taking on leadership roles,” says Smedley. “These tech-savvy women put personal energy into everything they do and they are driven by inspiration and the people that have motivated them through the years. I am looking forward to meeting this year’s winners in person!”

In addition, the WoM2M of IoT in Marketing winners will also be celebrated.

The seventh annual awards program recognizes women as trailblazers and innovators in the IoT space.
