While Graeme is taking some well deserved annual leave it’s my pleasure to write to you in this week’s newsletter.
Did you know that less than 1 in 20 girls even considers a high-paid career in science, technology, engineering or maths, compared to 1 in 5 boys? ShadowTech Day is back and aims to address this issue – it’s an opportunity for girls in Years 9-11 to experience what working in the tech sector is like, encouraging them onto education pathways that lead into tech sector roles. We have great businesses ready to host girls, but find it difficult to get traction from schools. So if you have schools in your network who could benefit from this awesome initiative, get them to register.
We have a busy calendar of events in the coming months, including the Digital Identity Trust Hui Taumata next Tuesday where we’ll be leading the digital trust conversation in Aotearoa. There are still tickets available so make sure you register here. The Aotearoa AI Summit is only a couple of months away on 21 September in Auckland, bringing some of the brightest minds in the industry together. Super Saver ticket sales close this Thursday (27 July) – get your tickets now to take advantage of this great offer.
I am looking forward to the NZTech AGM next month where we will announce the NZTech Board election results. We have several vacancies on the NZTech board and voting papers will have been sent to the voting representative for all NZTech member organisations last week.
Please register to join our online Annual General Meeting on 16 August.
