The world of ICT was once a male-dominated environment, but the landscape has changed significantly over the years. Telecom Review aims to celebrate that diversity and the shifting of demographics in the telecommunications and technology industry by conducting a special series of interviews every month which are entitled ‘Women in ICT’.

In this month’s feature, we managed to secure an exclusive interview with Wassan Athamina, Head of Alliance Management, ME, Africa & Balkans at PCCW Global. We spoke to her at the Telecom Review Leaders’ Summit 2018, where she was a moderator for a panel discussion that focused on the challenges emerging in the cybersecurity space.

In a brilliant interview, the PCCW Global executive conceded that whilst the ICT industry had made great strides in terms of gender equality and fairness, it still had a lot of work to do. In addition to this, she spoke of her gratitude to PCCW Global for being afforded such a senior position within the organization, and outlined her objectives and goals within her role over the next twelve months.
