The tech industry, like many others, is actively increasing their hiring of diversity and female staff. Businesses understand that diversity brings so much more to the table. However, there is still a shortage of females applying for roles within the IT sector.
To celebrate Ada Lovelace Day on 13 October, SIGNAL hosted guests in our Dunedin and Christchurch studios to watch the nationwide NZTechwomen 'Woman Back Yourselves - The Tech Industry Needs You!' live webinar.
With a panel of very talented and experienced women across several parts of the corporate sector, speakers shared how to make the most of current job opportunities, understand how Covid-19 has impacted this process within businesses and also how to read beyond a job description and remember what skills women can contribute.
