T-Systems: How to make innovation, transformation and global best practice work for you

Dineo has received numerous awards and acknowledgments in recognition of her leadership and achievements.

Meet Dineo Molefe, MD at T-Systems SA

One of the most challenging things in life is to balance work and family and having the determination to ‘make it’ in a world where leaders are not born but made. Dineo Molefe, MD at T-Systems South Africa can testify that it takes sheer determination and the will to educate oneself without the privilege of financial support, whilst raising a child at a young age, and managing to climb the ranks in the corporate world.

What left an indelible mark on Dineo is how many young girls/women currently face the same struggles that she battled over 20 years ago.  She has noticed that it is not only financial constraints that create barriers to education and a successful career, but also cultural attitudes such as respect that is often interpreted as a lack of confidence, shyness and an inability to have your voice heard. This was often apparent when Dineo engaged with graduates that participate in T-Systems internship programme.

But the spark for empowering women was ignited a long time ago for Dineo.  When working for Thebe Investment Corporation as Group Financial Director, her dream to help uplift women, young women in particular, took hold when she established “Thebe Ya Mosadi”, the company’s Women’s Empowerment Programme. Currently she currently sponsors the T-Systems Women’s Forum, which is led by women in the company.

Dineo has received numerous awards and acknowledgements in recognition of her leadership and achievements, among those are:

  • Winner 2018: Gender Mainstreaming Awards – Positive Role Model
  • Winner 2020: South African Professionals Awards – Professional of the Year Award in the Digital Industry Class of the Commerce, Law and Management Category.
  • Nominee 2020: TOPCO – Top Empowered Business Leader
