The Big Idea

Everything’s off the record: Speak freely with your peers about the good, the bad, and the downright ugly of working in Tech at the 6th annual Women in Tech. Fest. Chatham House rules apply. What’s said at the Women in Tech. Fest, stays at the Women in Tech. Fest!

It only takes a minute, one small decision, to change the entire trajectory of your career. Many of us grew up being asked ‘what do you want to be when you grow up,’ and most of had a ready answer. But did we make it? Can we look at the place we’re sitting in today and the job we’re doing and say a loud and resounding Yes! Some of us can and that’s great, but a lot of us probably can’t.

And that’s where Women in Tech. Fest 2022 comes in.

The demand for tech and ICT skills continues to increase year on year and Australia’s ability to meet this demand through the supply of skilled tech and ICT workers is vital for the nation’s innovation and productivity. However, there remains a lack of diversity in tech and ICT indicating a costly issue for the advancement of the Australian ICT sector.

Women in Tech. Fest 2022 is your opportunity to invest in your future.

By investing three days in yourself you have the potential to fully realise and revolutionise your ongoing commitment to being the best you can be. This isn’t a dry talk-a-thon conference. You’ll walk out at the end of the third day revitalised and full of energy and new ideas. Over two days of conferencing, and one day of deep diving into specialised topics with our intensive one-day Masterclasses, you will spend as much time hearing presentations as you will participating in interactive measures such as our fabulous champagne roundtables, participating in multiple panel discussions, and having the opportunity to ask questions of some phenomenal Australian business leaders who bring with them proven track records of success and achievement. There are also multiple networking opportunities across the three days and an exclusive dinner for Women in Tech. Fest attendees to unwind and build your business networks.

Given the nightmare that was COVID there’s never been a more important time to blow off the cobwebs and kick-start your career. Come and join us for three days of laughter, education, and inspiration as we finally get back together again to celebrate all that makes Women in Tech. Fest the must attend tech event in Australia.
