Congratulations to Assistant Professor Malika Meghjani for being awarded 2023 Singapore 100 Women in Tech (SG100WIT).
Organised by the Singapore Computer Society (SCS), in partnership with SG Women in Tech and Infocomm Media Development Authority (IMDA), the list recognises and celebrates women based in Singapore who have been inspiring and have made significant contributions to the tech industry. The SG 100 Woman in Tech is part of the SG Women in Tech initiative launched in 2019 by IMDA and supported by the community and industry partners. It seeks to highlight the rich diversity of roles and spotlight the role models in Singapore’s dynamic ICT sector, in the hope of inspiring girls and women to pursue a career in STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics).
Nominees needed to demonstrate tech expertise, leadership and vision, and community advocacy. Their achievements and contributions to the tech industry had to be impactful, influential and, above all, inspiring. There is no lack of inspiring women who were brave, bold and adventurous in spirit. In 2020, more than 850 nominations were received of which there were 466 women unique names. They came from all walks of life with varied backstories, all contributing in ways big and small to develop and nurture Singapore’s infocomm tech industry.
