Please join us at the annual Women in Tech breakfasts

Women make up only 23% of those employed in technology occupations yet the IT sector is one of the fastest growing sectors in New Zealand employing well over 120,000 people and contributing $16.2B in GDP to our economy. This year the Women in Tech breakfast series is going regional and we’ll focus on how we can build capacity in the tech sector, especially by promoting diversity.

Each breakfast event will feature three inspiring women who will tell us their stories about what drew them into technology careers and how we can improve that pathway for other women.We especially welcome young people interested in a future career in tech – role models, breakfast and coffee provided! So don’t delay register today
