Meet the Women in Consumer Technology Honorees

Overview The Women in Consumer Technology (WiCT) awards have traditionally been held at CES® every year, honoring the exceptional women transforming our industry. Meet the 2021 Legacy Awards Honorees.

The annual Women in Consumer Technology (WiCT) promotes the advancement of women in the consumer technology industry, and its Legacy Awards honor the remarkable women who are changing the industry landscape through their leadership.

The WiCT networking reception and awards ceremony has traditionally been held at CES®, and honorees in recent years have included Consumer Technology Association (CTA)® executives Cindy Stevens, senior director of publications, and Tiffany Moore, senior vice president of political and industry affairs, as well as women from CTA member companies and CES exhibitors, including Samsung, Facebook, Lutron Electronics, IBM and more.
