Although there has been some improvement in the numbers of women participating in the ICT workforce, much more work needs to be done for them to be well represented in the field.

In celebration of the Women’s Month, ITWeb spoke to local women in the industry about the issues affecting them, their success stories, and what needs to be done to address the gender imbalances that have traditionally characterised the ICT sector.

Debbie Tam, COO at Mustek, says more and more women are taking on management roles in the IT space. She gave the examples of Lindi Shortt MD at Rectron SA and Videsha Proothveerajh, country manager for southern Africa at Intel.

“When I look at today’s generation, I feel encouraged to witness a distinct change in the number of females actively pursuing a career in ICT.”
