Atlanta, GA (PRWEB) August 28, 2014
The 2014 list of the “Most Influential Women in Wireless” by FierceWireless was just published, Aug 28.
Industry analyst Jeff Kagan says congratulations and offers comment.
“Sue Marek of FierceWireless has been writing about this growing list of influential women in wireless for years. This is something that not everyone realizes, but women are playing a growing and important role in the evolution of the wireless industry.” Says wireless analyst Kagan.
“So let me offer a heartfelt congratulations to every women on this list and the countless other women who work in the wireless industry and make it better day-by-day.” Says Technology analyst Kagan.
FierceWireless says they were struck by how many more women are among the top-ranked executives at wireless companies. It says the industry has made efforts toward this evolution.
One example is last week AT&T made a $1 million contribution to “Girls Who Code”, a national nonprofit working to close the gender gap in the tech and engineering sectors.
It also said Verizon was one of the top 50 companies for executive women according to the National Association for Female Executives.
“The wireless industry is heading in the right direction and that should make everyone happy. Congratulations to the women on this list and to every woman in the wireless industry. I am looking forward to next years list already!” Says Telecom analyst Kagan.
