Technology for Women in Business
Technology for Women in Business (TWIB) was created under the auspices of the Department of Trade and Industry (dti) in 1998, the Year of Science and Technology, to help advance women in business, with a particular emphasis on the application of science and technology to achieve business growth in women-led enterprises, particularly small, medium and macro enterprises (SMMEs) .
A very special part of the TWIB initiative is the support it will give to young women in encouraging them to follow careers in science and technology. This initiative is known as the Techno-Girl Programme.
The TWIB annual awards celebrate and recognise women who succeed in integrating technology in their business. Those who win awards, together with those who are nominated, become our technology ambassadors.
