WIT has developed an Outreach Program designed to provide information and connect with young women as to what careers are available within ICT and Life Sciences. There are a lot of wonderful organisations providing support to young women pursuing a technical career but it is important that they are made aware of all opportunities.
The intent of the Outreach Program is to reach as many students as possible utilising volunteers from the WIT membership from various industries. Our long term vision is to also provide online sessions where students can connect with mentors during a specific time and ask questions that they may not be able to ask in front of their peers. The vision also includes that we will get to the stage where we have a junior WIT group who runs their own agenda and assists to promote technology careers within schools through a peer network.
WIT is very excited about the Outreach Program and if you are interested in receiving some further information on the program, seeing if this program can benefit your school or go online and request a visit, please email us on email@example.com.
