WiT 2015 Annual Survey
WiT Celebrates 20 Year Milestone
Well 2017 has well and truly arrived and we have hit the ground running with a little more excitement in our step as we celebrate the 20TH ANNIVERSARY OF WOMEN IN TECHNOLOGY! Be on the lookout for upcoming newsletters featuring stories from the past like this gem!
February saw the first session of our Mentoring Program hosting 20 eager Mentees commencing their mentoring journey (pictured left).
We also held the first of our ICT City Series Breakfasts with a sold out session with Wendie Lee, General Manager IS Solutions Delivery at Super Retail Group. (pictured right with L-R Bec Langdon (WiT) Barbara Shaw (Qld Gov) Wendie Lee (Super Retail Group & Kristy Simpkin (WiT))
After some intensive planning we have an exciting 2017 planned but to assist us in providing the best possible outcomes to our members we would be grateful, if you haven't already done so, if you can complete our 2017 Annual Survey. We use these survey results as a basis for our coming year to ensure we are on track with our offerings and to incorporate additional events and programs to respond to our member needs.
We will also be holding our 2017 AGM on 19th of April, 2017 (bookings opening soon for this free event) and look forward to sharing with you some exciting new plans, new board positions as well as launching our spectacular 2017 WiT AWARDS! So make sure you save the date!
We look forward to a successful 20th year and invite you to actively take part in this journey with us.
WiT STORIES - SARAH KIRKLAND 'AWARD YOURSELF'
The second of our WiT Stories comes from Sarah Kirkland, creator of Red Cat Science and Winner of our Outstanding Educator Award 2016.
On receiving advice of her nomination for a WiT Award Sarah had a similar response to a lot of our nominees....."really......me? On applying she found the application process beneficial in taking a step back and looking at herself and what she had achieved and not taking herself for granted.
The result.....Sarah became winner of our first Outstanding Educator Award!....
