Description

For this, the third event in our 2019 series, we're excited to bring you an incredibly inspiring talk from Dr Kirstin Ferguson (Deputy Chair of the ABC, non-executive director, author of Women Kind, Creator of #CelebratingWomen, keynote speaker) followed by an intimate panel Q&A where she will be joined by two awesome leaders in technology from our own local landcape here in Sydney.

Our gatherings are exclusive to our Members so if you need to join, CLICK HERE

Our guests are highly accomplished leaders, women who have carved out impactful careers and they're coming to help fuel your journeys and to reinforce why being a woman in tech is an amazing opportunity to shape and influence our world and seed future generations of amazing women leading the charge.

As well as hearing from our very special guests, enjoy an uplifting evening of networking over drinks and eats with other women who are also working in technology careers in Sydney (this time we've planned a bit of fun to get you mingling with your new tribe!). And if you haven't already, you can join The F Factor's extremely popular "Help A Girl Out" mentor program too.

You'll learn and take inspiration from some of the best influencers in and around the tech' industry who will share their stories with us, move your career forward with access to opportunities with the most female-in-tech-friendly organisations in Australia, and create strong connections with a network of talented women working in technology. We will come together to discover more than we know, create something we can be proud of and help each other out.

Inclusion & Belonging:
We welcome and celebrate all women working in technology careers, across every race, ethnicity, country of origin, sexual orientation, visible and invisible ability. We welcome transgender and non-binary.
