Nominees shortlisted for BlackBerry Women & Technology Awards


Women & TechnologyThe entries since November have been chewed through, and we’ve now got a list of some of the top women in the tech sector. RIM’s Third Annual Women & Technology Awards aim to showcase and reward the women who are making great headway in an industry that is otherwise dominated by us menfolk. Jackie Edwards, a 2005 winner, put it rather succinctly: “It doesn’t require extra muscles or testosterone to operate a computer and I think more women should be here.”
