It's that time of the year again...
One of our favourite days of the year...
It's Women in Digital's International Women's Day Breakfast!
That's right, it's time to step away from the computer screen and webinar link - we want to see you in person for some real-life human-to-human networking.
Join us at the gorgeous Calile Hotel in Brisbane to hear from one very accomplished Non-Executive Director and Innovation Leader, the Founder of Australia's top babysitting app, an AI/ML leader and role model for women and LGBTIQA+ in tech, and finally the CEO of a thriving EdTech startup making waves across the world. We are very excited to see these four incredible leaders in digital (plus one very passionate MC) hit the stage and share all their wisdom with us.
What a lineup!
We'll discuss how these women are forging incredible careers in digital and technology, what drives them to be leaders in their fields, what their personal and professional blend looks like, and what this years' International Womens' Day theme #BreakTheBias means to them.
