Recording from The Ada Lovelace Day

Women Back Yourselves – The Tech Industry Needs You!

Ada Lovelace Day is an international celebration of the achievements of women in science, technology, engineering, and maths (STEM) on the 13th October 20.

It aims to increase the profile of women in STEM and, in doing so, create new role models who will encourage more girls into STEM careers and support women already working in STEM. The IT industry, like many others, is actively increasing their hiring of diversity and female staff. Businesses understand that diversity brings so much more to the table. However, there is still a shortage of females applying for roles within the IT sector, which we are focusing on during this webinar. With a panel of very talented and experienced women across several parts of the corporate sector, we will be discussing how women can help ourselves to push our natural boundaries when applying for a role, understand how Covid has impacted this process within businesses and also how to read beyond a job description and remember what skills you can contribute.

Key speakers:

TechWomen TechWomen is a group of passionate New Zealand tech, digital and ICT focused individuals from leading organisations that work together, with the support of NZTech, to help address the shortage of women in tech roles.
