“Innovating Women: The Changing Face of Technology”

As women continue to make strides and gain respect in STEM fields, Vivek Wadhwa and Farai Chideya have compiled a collection of stories, essays and interviews featuring leading women in innovation.

The stories, packaged in “Innovating Women: The Changing Face of Technology,” aim to promote the success of women who are redefining the STEM workforce and helping close the gender gap. Each firsthand account also serves as a catalyst to inspire more women to pursue careers in STEM and innovation.

Among the hundreds of women noted in the book are Google executive Megan Smith, venture capitalist Heidi Roizen, Patriarch Partners CEO Lynn Tilton, and entrepreneur and technology executive Kim Polese. Alongside the other contributors, these women give voice to the career challenges women often must overcome and workplace strategies they have found effective.

“Innovating Women,” published in September, is available on www.800ceoread.com for $11.89.
