On 20 February 2023, The Singapore Computer Society (SCS), together with the Infocomm Media Development Authority (IMDA), announced the third edition of the Singapore 100 Women in Tech (SG 100 WiT) list, an initiative that recognizes and celebrates the achievements of women in Singapore’s tech industry. It aims to inspire more women to pursue or advance their careers in technology and for female students to discover their interest and passion in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM). 

Themed “Empowering Yourself, Inspiring Others”, the SG100 WiT list aims to honor 100 inspiring women and young rising stars who have created tech solutions or won tech competitions and had contributed significantly to the tech community. These women would be role models in areas like business and tech leadership, community advocates, technologists, educators or researchers, and entrepreneurs. The second edition in 2021 saw more than 600 nominations received in total from members of the public as well as from schools and universities.

Nominations are currently open until 15 April 2023. Individuals, organizations, and companies are invited to nominate inspiring women in tech who are making a significant impact in their field through this link.

Speaking on the vision for this year’s SG 100 WIT initiative, Tan Lee Chew, President of Women in Tech Chapter at SCS and President Commercial at ST Engineering shares, “We are delighted to present the third edition of this initiative and it is a testament to our commitment of attracting, retaining, and developing women talent across a diversity of Infocomm technology roles in the industry. It is heartening to see the increasing contributions of women in the tech sector. This initiative celebrates their determination and resilience in pursuing growth opportunities and in setting a high bar of excellence to create a gender-diverse workforce that takes the nation forward. This year, we want to continue the efforts of honouring more women of diverse backgrounds and empowering the next generation of young women.”
