Here are some of the great opportunities for women to help each other with their careers and share knowledge.
Women in Technology (WIT)
Women in Technology (WIT) promises to provide a safe networking and learning environment for ladies at all stages of their careers – where there is no hard sell and it’s easy and you are encouraged to meet new people.
Women in Digital
Women in Digital was created by founder Holly Tattersall, who was working in Digital Recruitment. She noticed the lack of female role models and leaders in the industry. The organisation includes a mentoring program and a range of events and services for women in the industry. It includes the Women in Digital awards to identify more industry role models, inspiring the next generation of digital leaders.
Tech Ladies connects you with the best jobs and opportunities in tech with a strong American focus. They connect companies with the best tech-makers. You can join the community or post to the job board. There is a cool shop packed with tech-themed t-shirts and merchandise. I have used their Facebook group for sage advice.
Minding Her Business
Minding Her Business is a platform for ambitious women to connect, collaborate and create. They launched in Brisbane and including anti-boring networking events. Think live music, laughs, bubbly, grazing tables, doughnut walls and more.
Do you work from home? Are you new to town? Looking for a new circle of friends? Needing some serious inspo? or just wanting to bounce some ideas?
The group have created a great community through their events, Facebook group and online members forum.
Business Chicks were created to support each other, learn from each other and to give back. Whether you’re running your own show, surrounded by others in an office, or just missing that sense of connection and support, the Business Chicks community has your back.
Committee for Economic Development Australia (CEDA)
CEDA is a great forum to network with leading decision makers in Australia. They hold regular events around the country for members and produce useful research publications.
CEDA is an Australian organisation that undertakes research with the objective of delivering independent, evidence-based policy, address critical economic issues and drive public debate and discussion.
Don’t forget your university alumni or the professional organisation in your particular industry’s field. Meetups are also a great way to meet like-minded people for professional or personal development.
Where is your go-to group for networking in real life or online to talk tech?
