The highlight of the SG100WIT list is the introduction of the “Girls in Tech” category, which has 18 students from various institutions across Singapore. The female students who are 13 years and above and who pursue their interest in technology and make some contributions for the benefit of the community are chosen and nominated by institutions.
The 100 women who figure on the list were evaluated based on their outstanding achievements and contributions by the panel of professionals from technology, business, and academic communities. These awardees inspire and motivate everyone with their unique stories. They are role models for many women in Singapore, and they encourage them to pursue a career in Singapore’s vibrant technology sector.
