About NZTech Women
The 100 TechWomen project is setting out to inspire young women into tech careers. We are profiling 100 sucessful TechWomen in NZ and publishing this across multi-platforms in an easy to consume format.
Finding a mentor can be challenging, so we are launching a mentoring circles programme for NZTech Members. Our programme will match two mentors with six women. The women will benefit from having access to a broader range of insights and viewpoints, from both their peers and mentors.
TechWomen is a community of hundreds of women in technology roles across the country, that get together at connect events to network, workshop and hear from other successful women tech leaders.
TechWomen actively encourages women to enter relevant awards and recognition programmes. We work with many organisations that run awards programmes to review their process to reduce barriers around women being successful in achieving recognition for their work.
Return to IT
The Return to IT programme assists New Zealand women who have taken a career break from the digital technology sector – whether it be for children, family, or any other reason – to return to work in the digital technology workforce
The ShadowTech Day programme provides young women in years 9 -11 with an opportunity to experience what working in the tech sector could be like, encouraging them onto education pathways that lead into tech sector roles.
