A week after International Women's Day, and as rallies to support injustices against women are happening in Australia's capital cities, iTWire is publishing Peggy de Lange's longer op-ed on IWD2021 as a reminder to all.
Jane Bounds is Director of Marketing at Trustwave, and on #IWD2021, she's here to debunk the myth that cybersecurity is for men only, that this misperception is discouraging women from entering the cyber security industry, and she spoke to four outstanding colleagues about it.
The answer to gender equality is not only hiring more women, says author, coach, speaker and corporate advisor, Danielle Dobson, it’s breaking the gender code with those already on your team.
“International Women’s Day is a wonderful opportunity for me to think about the women who’ve helped me and those who I’ve helped along the way”, explains Kate Toon, founder of the Stay Tooned Group and the My Business Awards Businesswoman of the Year 2020.
March 8 is International Women's Day, a global day celebrating the social, economic, cultural, and political achievements of women, and a day that "marks a call to action for accelerating women's equality", and iTWire is proud to be taking part in sharing some powerful stories from inspirational women in the world of technology.
While Australian Government figures show women make up half the private sector workforce, they make only a third of key management positions. This International Women’s Day theme is “choose is to challenge”, and Kathryn Vosper, a technology firm executive, is living evidence we can all reject bias, and instead be a leader in standing up for what is right.
The business world needs to move away from the perception that IT equals coding and recognise that there is much more to working in technology, the vice-president of online services provider Cherwell APAC, says.
The head of Australian and New Zealand operations for Swiss human resources giant Adecco feels that the technology sector needs to stay away from bias in leadership in order to make progress.
The tourism and hospitality industry represents another sorry tale in equality when it comes to employment; while 70% of the workforce is female, just 20% of executive officers and 8% of directors are women.
In one way at least, Kate Quirke is unique: she is the lone woman heading a company on the ASX's new 46-firm All Tech Index. But it's not something that makes her happy or proud.
Women who work in the Australian technology sector are as one in saying that more of their tribe are needed in the ICT industry for a number of reasons. To mark International Women's Day, a number of them offered their opinions as to how the IT industry can attract more female talent in 2019 and in the years ahead.
The Australian Computer Society will host an event in Sydney on Friday — which is International Women's Day — to highlight the issues that women face in the technology sector.
A new study released by "employment marketplace" Seek for International Women’s Day shows that "over 65% of Australia’s workforce would like to see more women in leadership roles."
One of Australia's few female chief information officers is noncommittal about the idea of quotas for women in tech, but says that with current moves to boost the number of women in the industry not working, something else needs to be done.
On International Women’s Day, the co-founder and VP Marketing at Matrixx Software, Jennifer Kyriakakis, shares her views on tech, telcos, Telstra, OTT video, Chief Digital Officers, the future and more!
