Women in Technology Sponsorship 2018

23 April 2018

The University of Queensland continues our partnership with the Women in Technology (WiT) association and has committed to be a major sponsor for the coming years.

Founded in 1997, WiT is the first technology industry association to bring together members from diverse technology disciplines, ranging from biotech to engineering to traditional information communications and technology.

WiT is one of the leading technology industry associations for women in Australia and aims to create a sustainable network of members focused on the advancement of women in technology industries.

Since its inception, WiT has been a pioneer in the development of industry development programs such as:

  • Board ReadinessTM
  • annual ICT and life sciences WiT awards
  • professional development workshops
  • mentoring programs
  • regional programs
  • outreach programs
  • networking events

As part of UQ’s sponsorship current UQ employees are entitled to free membership of WiT under their corporate membership.

To apply for WiT membership, contact the WiT secretariat and they will arrange for you to be added under their membership, where you can begin to receive member benefits.

Some benefits that members receive include:

  • discount to all events 
  • annual ICT and life sciences WiT awards
  • professional development workshops
  • mentoring programs
  • regional programs
  • outreach programs
  • networking events

To gain the most benefit it is strongly suggested that members involve themselves as much as possible in WiT: donate, provide feedback, mentor, contribute, sponsor, become a board or chapter member or volunteer. 

Connect with WiT via their Linkedin Group, Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and their YouTube Channel.
