The Women in Technology QLD (WiT) organisation and Diverse City Careers (DCC), a job site for women, have joined forces to combine their efforts on the advancement of women in technology industries.

Fiona Hayes, WiT president says WiT’s vision is to advance, connect and empower women in technology and life sciences and the group is excited about collaborating with DCC to achieve “greater outcomes for both our communities.”

Hayes said addressing the diversity agenda takes the combined efforts of many.

Under the partnership, WiT and DCC say they will be building awareness around gender equality through a number of campaigns, with the next event STEMMed - hosted by WiT in Brisbane on the 29 May. STEMed is a one day festival of education for the future, bringing together experts, advocates, industry, educators, parents and youth.
