Recent Panel - Why is tech still a boys' club?

 

Did you know that in IT education, men outnumber women by roughly 4 to 1 nationally? Shockingly, this statistic has seen only marginal improvement over the past decade. It’s high time we delve into why the tech industry remains predominantly a boy’s club.

On Wednesday the 24th of April at 7pm (Sydney Time) we discussed this exact topic with a panel of professional women from various sectors of the IT industry. In a welcoming and open dialogue, we’ll explore topics such as the division of labour, strategies for effecting lasting change, the vital role of support networks, and much more.
