A power-packed line-up of CIOs and technology leaders will share executive career advice and guidance at the upcoming Women in ICT Awards (WIICTA), as Channel Asia sets a new industry benchmark for female achievement across Southeast Asia.

Housing a blend of iconic global and local brands, the channel will receive first-hand accounts of inspirational stories of individual growth and success from the top technology decision-makers at Coca-Cola, DHL, HGC Global Communications, Essilor Group and Ingram Micro.

Delivered via a series of 10-minute Power CIO Talk addresses, leading executives will outline standout career achievements and examples of how to overcome industry adversity, backed by authentic advice for both established and aspiring female leaders across ASEAN.

This is in addition to State of Gender Diversity in the Tech Channel, a new research initiative designed to examine D&I progress across the technology channel. This in-depth survey will focus on the three core pillars of D&I, spanning Tech Industry, Workplace and Personal Experience.

In an industry-first for the channel, research profiled female, male and other gender identities, welcoming submissions from CEO to graduate levels across all company sizes, industry segments and locations. Housing more than 500 responses, questions were designed to be fielded by participants across different age groups, cultural backgrounds and job functions — spanning management, sales, operations, technical and marketing roles — irrespective of industry tenure.

The aim is to independently and confidentially source a range of perspectives industry-wide, aligned to the collective goal of moving the conversation forward in relation to D&I within the channel.

The launch of  State of Gender Diversity in the Tech Channel represents a landmark moment in the industry, with IDG — as the world’s leading tech media, data and marketing services company — becoming the first independent outlet to open such dedicated research in ASEAN.

Such exclusive customer and market research insights will be delivered during WIICTA, a virtual experience set for Thursday 5 August (2pm-4pm SGT), playing host to a talented group of female front runners who have become influential figures across the local industry. To register — click here.
