The gender gap in tech is a well-documented challenge. Women are underrepresented in the tech workforce and they are even more underrepresented in leadership roles. According to research, only 27.6% of the tech workforce identifies as female – making the gap significant.
Fortunately, there are women in the industry who are pushing for that narrative to change. Palesa Selepe-Mahlase is a passionate technologist with more than 13 years experience in the broadcast media industry. She is currently the manager for Engineering Operations atSuperSport, where she is part of the team responsible for delivering high quality sports content from all parts of South Africa.
