WiTWA Events & News
WiTWA organises events to facilitate communication, networking and conversation about women in technology. Most events are open to everyone (all genders).
WiTWA Boardroom Series
Join us at our Department of Communities sponsored Jobs of the Future Breakfast Event where we will hear from Keynote Josh Richards – Mars One Astronaut Candidate followed by a panel discussion with some of Perth's most innovative women in tech! Physicist, Explosives Engineer, Soldier, Comedian, Astronaut Candidate – one thing Josh Richards can never be accused of is being boring. Selected from over 200,000 initial applicants, he’s currently one of 100 astronaut candidates short-listed for a one-way mission to colonize Mars.
Josh will be facilitating an interactive panel discussion on Job of the Future with the following incredible local women in tech: Vee Pendergast, Elizabeth Meredith, Gry Stene & Melissa Ettinger. Intrigued? Grab yourself a ticket and join us for breakfast.
Monthly Meetups & Networking
Come and join us for our monthly networking sessions. Open new doors, strengthen your networks and discover hidden opportunities by connecting with others active in WA's technology sector. All our events are designed for members and non-members of all genders.
Have you, or are you about to start a new venture? Do you want to find out more about what to expect, the pitfalls and successes that you may expect? Dr Suzanne Bahn, CEO of Tap into Safety, will share her experiences in building a highly successful new venture at our next WiTWA TECHXchange. Come along to hear from Sue, meet others and join the discussion about what is working and what opportunities are being missed. This WiTWA TECHXchange will be held on Wednesday 25 October 2017.
