Lucie Hammond and Donna Edwards
We are delighted to welcome Lucie Hammond and Donna Edwards to the WiTWA Committee.
Lucie Hammond is an entrepreneur with a huge amount of energy for learning, growth and realising people potential through new and emerging disruptive technology. With a background in corporate communications, change, psychotherapy and executive coaching she is well placed to explore enterprise needs for the future of work. Lucie is Founder and CEO of Diversifly, a start-up specialising in learning and development through virtual reality, with a particular focus on the people and leadership skills that she believes will differentiate humans from bots in the coming age of automation.
As General Manager with Ignia, Donna Edwards has been building amazing teams for over seventeen years. Most recently she has grown Ignia from a 25 person locally-focussed development shop to one of the largest and most respected technology solutions consultancies in Perth. Donna is a regular speaker at community events on topics around diversity, employee engagement, talent management and business growth. Both bring a broad range of experience, as well as a great deal of enthusiasm to the Committee. Welcome on board ladies!
Monthly Meetups at the Cheeky Sparrow
Come and join us every month at the Cheeky Sparrow. Open new doors, strengthen your networks and discover hidden opportunities by connecting with others active in WA's technology sector. These informal events are designed for members and non-members of all genders.
Join us for the upcoming WiTWA TechXchange meet up where Lucie Hammond, CEO and Founder of Diversifly will be talking about applying virtual reality technology to learning and development, and specifically on new ways to progress diversity through interactive VR experiences. This is not just a disruptive training program using sexy tech, although it is that, but it is also a huge opportunity to enable the human race to understand one another more deeply, and for enterprise to fuel the global diversity movement forward!
This WiTWA TECHXchange will be held on Wednesday 20 September 2017. For more details visit our Events page. This is a wonderful and easy way to get to know more about Women in Technology in WA; so come on your own or bring a friend. All are welcome, regardless of gender, age or experience. Thanks to the support of the Department of Communities a number of free sponsored tickets are available to women currently studying, unemployed or looking to enter into a role within the technology sector.
