The path to being a Geek, does not have to start with a Degree in Technology.
It's never too late to get into the tech industry, more than 1/2 of my staff (including myself), started out in another industry and "changed over" to a career in the dark side (I.T.)!
We need to encourage and educate young women and have them understand that there are many aspects to the Technology Industry's, and you don't necessarily have to be a Programmer or a Scientist to have a love for the industry and to be a geek at heart.
This month WiT (www.wit.org.au) are kindly donating a 12 month membership (value $143). All attendees are entitled to a 2 month trial membership if they wish on the night which will allow them to attend the free member’s only Infotech breakfast on 28th April.
Who is invited?
If you are a geek and a girl or know of one who is willing to escort you then you are welcome and encouraged to come along. There is a technical focus with the intention of having fun and connecting with other women in IT.
Who pays for dinner?
This month is not sponsored so you will have to pay for your own dinner
