You can’t be
what you can’t see

The Wired4Women Tech Forum has, for three years, been working to redress the gender imbalance in the IT and communication sector and has taken significant steps in growing a community of women, connecting them, and providing guidance, mentorship and training opportunities, but the time is ripe to take it to the next level.

Wired4Women and ITWeb Brainstorm are pleased to announce the 100 Influential Women in Tech directory, which will be published in May and showcases women who are already setting the path for others to follow in this fast-paced and exciting industry. If we are to improve gender imbalance, we need role models.


The 100 Influential Women in Tech publication will include profiles of 100 women who are breaking down barriers and leading the way.

Profiles will be categorised into five main sections:

  • In-house technologists, which includes the senior level executives who work in corporate companies, leading a business technology function, so the likes of CIO, CISO and CDO.
  • Industry technologists are the leaders of companies that sell technology in the supply chain/channel, and includes positions such as CEOs, MDs and heads of department.
  • Industry influencers include policy makers, regulators, representatives of professional bodies and women who are driving industry initiatives; they help to set the direction and shape the industry and its community.
  • Entrepreneurs are the founders or commercial leaders pushing technology-centric companies from startup to success.
  • Rising stars are women, aged 35 and under (as at the end of 2024), who have experienced rapid career growth in a field within technology, or are progressing well academically.


Printed in full-colour, this exclusive guide to the country’s top women in tech will be distributed with the May edition of Brainstorm, and goes to leading private sector corporates and enterprises and key government and public sector organisations. Brainstorm’s audience consists of a highly targeted and influential base of IT, technology and business decision-makers.

The publication will also benefit from distribution among the ever-growing database of Wired4Women members, which includes women across all levels of seniority and experience in the ICT space. And to ensure we reach upcoming generations of women, we’ll be distributing copies to the libraries of universities and TVET colleges.


The directory will profile influential women from across the ICT industry, selected by a panel of Brainstorm’s independent editorial team. We call on the industry to nominate female industry leaders.
