Inspirational Women In Tech To Follow

One the most looming and disturbing issues within the technology sector is the shocking lack of women.

The Women In Tech movement is an attempt to restore balance to the technology space. Achieving workplace balance benefits all of us. Study after study has shown that companies benefit from more female technologists and leaders.

Looking back at my own 20-year career in technology — the most fruitful and enjoyable experiences were always in organizations that had a healthy gender balance.

Somehow along the highway to amazing technological progress and (r)evolution, women have been left at the bus stop.

We need to fix this.

Here is a list of female leaders in tech that you should be paying attention to. They are leaders, they are innovators, they are people who get things done — and they happen to be women too.

Note: You can click on the Twitter handles for all of these women to follow them individually.

We also have created a Twitter list, which includes all of these leaders in one handy reference (and a few other accounts also).
