Meet the Women in GovTech
Exclusive special report: inspiring stories from Asia Pacific.
Today GovInsider publishes 12 interviews with women in government technology roles from across Asia.
They show the diversity of digital jobs, from developers and designers to marketers, managing directors, city mayors and chief executives.
We hope that the articles will bust a few stereotypes, and inspire women who are currently in the public sector or considering joining.
The interviews give examples of how to ask for promotion; cope in the public eye; move between the public and private sector; achieve more in a career; choose a mentor; manage colleagues; and serve the public.
We hear from officials in Australia, Hong Kong, Indonesia, Malaysia, Singapore and New Zealand.
All have had different career paths and experiences. What unites them is that they are all inspiring. Here is the full list:
