Hear from the disruptors,
learn from the revolutionaries,
and be empowered by the women that
broke the boundaries.
Microsoft invites you to TechFemme, a unique event designed to inspire and empower young women from STEM-related backgrounds. This year’s theme is #SheDisrupts, celebrating the women that defied social expectations and industry norms. Over one evening, attendees will learn about the tech industry from the remarkable women that have led the way including speakers from Microsoft, Linkedin and Cisco.
We'll kick off the evening with an introduction from Anita Sood, Microsoft Australia's Head of Independent Software Venders. Anita will discuss her personal journey in the tech industry, and how she views disruption and the future of technology.
The panel will bring together some of the brightest minds in Australia's tech industry including Microsoft, Linkedin and Cisco. They will provide insight into how students can get their foot into the industry, navigate career opportunities and offer advice to students. Here is your opportunity to ask questions!
Attendees will have the opportunity to attend one of three breakout sessions that deep dive into poignant issues affecting the tech industry. These will include;
The Future of Technology (Machine Learning, Cognitive Services and DevOps)
Empowering the World through Technology (Including real examples of how technology has disrupted healthcare, retail and education industries)
Adopting a Growth Mindset (Exploring how students can apply this mindset to their personal and professional lives).
Networking and Drinks
The night will close with networking and canapés, giving you the unique opportunity to rub shoulders with representatives from Microsoft, LinkedIn, and Cisco.
We look forward to seeing you there!
