Women in CE Announces Name Change, Becomes Women in Consumer Technology
Following in the footsteps of another organization that recently changed its name, the Women in Consumer Electronics announced that it will now be known as the Women in Consumer Technology. The mission of the organization—to provide women in the industry a platform for networking and career growth—will remain the same.
The new name was introduced at the organization’s annual Legacy Awards Networking Reception last month during CES 2016. The Women in CT rebrand also includes a refreshed website.
“The time is right to evolve our identity to Women in Consumer Technology,” Carol Campbell, founder of Women in Consumer Technology, said in a statement. “Since our inception in 2009, the success of the organization has been fueled by the support of organizations like CTA and CEDIA, which have also broadened their scope to drive and embrace innovation in the consumer and home technology fields. We are proud that Women in Consumer Technology has gained the respect of our industry as a representative of the important initiatives that support women in the consumer technology sector as just plain good business. We have worked hard to collaborate with our sister organizations such as the Women of InfoComm Network (WIN) and other prominent voices to attract more women to our industry. Through our organization, we train, encourage, and support these women to ultimately watch them thrive.”
