Tebogo Makgatho’s career is grounded within the information and communications technology (ICT) and services industry.

Tebogo Makgato
Chairperson

Biography: Tebogo Makgatho

Tebogo Makgatho’s career is grounded within the information and communications technology (ICT) and services industry. She is driven by a passion to transform the ICT sector and break the barriers to entry into this predominantly white and male-dominated sector.

With the impact of technology, digitisation and artificial intelligence on the global society being felt on a daily basis and the Fourth Industrial revolution upon us, Makgatho feels keenly that South Africa needs to be prepared for the new frontier it faces. This, she believes, makes training and education absolutely vital. Makgatho is an evangelist of digital transformation, especially amongst the youth and has been engaged and immersed in youth programmes since her entry into the ICT sector.

Makgatho’s career in the ICT sector began as a research analyst investigating the sector’s trends and dynamics for both government and the private sector. She became a research manager at Information Systems Electronics and Telecommunications Technologies (ISETT) Sector Education Training Authority (SETA), looking at patterns of skills supply and demand.
