Women in Wireless celebrate mobile innovation and leadership
In celebration of the second annual Mobile Marketing Week, Women in Wireless hosted a speed networking event in eight cities.
The worldwide event took place on Sept. 11. The cities involved were Chicago, San Francisco, New York, Boston, Singapore, Seattle, Hamburg and Los Angeles.
"The mobile and digital media industry used to be male dominated, but with the help of organizations like Women in Wireless, women are more visible, more supported and have access to structured mentoring and education to move into leadership positions," said Kristine van Dillen, co-chair of the local and international chapters committee of Women in Wireless, New York.
"We expect to see a growing number of female entrepreneurs, C-level executives and female industry leaders in the future," she said.
Here is what attendees had to say about the event as well as some pictures:
Lauren Brickley, Chicago
"We are happy to say Chicago had an amazing launch last night. We had more than 100 people.”
Aurelie Guerrieri, co-chair of the local and international chapters committee of Women in Wireless, San Francisco
"Women in Wireless seeks to empower women in the mobile and digital media industry."
"Women tend to shy away from events and self-promotion," she said. "Women in Wireless wants to break down these barriers, and speed networking is just one way to allow professionals the experience of an abrupt introduction to a complete stranger over and over again until it becomes a habit."
Petra Vorsteher, Hamburg
"We enjoyed champagne, the Women in Wireless video and lots of fun and laughter. What a great start for the new Germany chapter."
Sheryl Tullis, Seattle
"A great event at a cool jazz club. Couldn't stop the networking!"
Meeta Chawla, Los Angeles
"We had ladies from the agency side, carrier side, freelancers, mobile networks and providers and media. The resounding feedback we heard throughout the evening was how happy [women were] that Women in Wireless is finally doing something in LA."
Diana Epstein, Boston
"Attendees were all smiles as Alison Vacovec used a martini shaker as a bell to change networking partners. Boston is looking forward to launching an official chapter in the next few months."
