As a young and established digital marketing leader and the Digital Strategy Director of Nerdware, Shiko Mamotheti has been announced as one of the phenomenal winners in this year’s Advertising Week Africa’s Future is Female Awards (AWAfrica), presented by Inverroche.

Although in its fourth year at AWNewYork and third year at AWEurope Week, this was the inaugural year for Africa (AWAfrica) and took place during Advertising Week Africa.

The Future is Female Award is intended to be an inclusive award — no age limits, no set job titles — which honours women in the industry for igniting change and cultivating the future of the industry. Honourees were selected based on a combination of proven achievements, demonstrated ability to affect organisational change, commitment to external impact, ability to mentor others and professional endorsements.

“I am honoured to have been chosen as the winner of this prestigious title. To stand amongst these powerful and inspiring women is extremely humbling,” says Mamotheti.

“As we continue to see more positive changes in attitudes towards the empowerment of female leaders, I believe that this award is important for acknowledging the hard work of the powerful women not just in our industry, but in Africa too. I am incredibly proud to have been named amongst so many awe-inspiring nominees.”
