Women in Technology celebrate their 21st birthday this year and 2018 is shaping up to be an extraordinary year for Women in Technology. The hardwork of the previous 20 years has seen continuing improvement in the strength of the organisation. With increasing membership & sponsorship WiT is able, more now than in previous years, to provide members with greater opportunities, programs & support.
Investment back into the organisation in 2018 will be strong with huge benefits to our members.
We strongly encourage you to come along to our AGM whether you are a current member, new to the organisation or considering membership. The AGM and networking drinks & canapes is a great opportunity to meet new contacts or spend quality time with friends, colleagues & fellow members who are always keen to share ideas, challenges, expertise and business cards.
Networking is both fun and important - you never know when that accidental conversation could solve your problem, change your business or open up a new opportunity!
