After much suspense we can now reveal that at Lunchtime on on Wednesday the 8th of September, Tech ED Australia will be hosting the Women Build LEGO® SERIOUS PLAY (LSP) as the Women in IT event!! There has been such an amazing response to these events as they have been held at previous events that it is indeed a very exciting opportunity to get involved!
The Women in IT function at Tech Ed this year is specifically designed to address the decline of female talent and leadership in the IT industry. We’ll ask why is this happening and discuss how we can turn this trend around.
Microsoft have partnered with LEGO® SERIOUS PLAY (LSP) through Robert Rasmussen & Associates with their local agency Management Consultancy International to create a unique interactive workshop, using LEGO® Bricks to model solutions for growing strong female leaders in the software industry.
The session will give you an opportunity to meet other females in the IT industry – local and international, learn from role models that have been successful in their career and give you access to resources that can help you build your career and your own network. The session will help you make the most of the Microsoft Women in Technology community.
And yes, of course men can attend this event also.
You can nominate to attend the WIT function when you register for Tech Ed – alternatively if you have already registered, a separate link will be available for you to register to attend as part of the schedule builder! 🙂
