WITWA Techtrails Digital Toolkit now live
Our Digital Techtrails Toolkit designed to inspire students, teachers, parents and career changers is now live.
Our Digital Techtrails Toolkit designed to inspire students, teachers, parents and career changers is now live. The toolkit is based on a "Career Wheel" originally designed by Kinetic IT and licensed to WITWA as the starting point of our Digital Toolkit.
Thanks to funding received in 2017 from the Australian Government under a Women in STEM and Entrepreneurship Grant from the Department of Industry, Innovation and Science, we have been able to add this digital dimension to our physical Techtrails Future Skills Incursion Program.
Very few people really know what they want to be when they leave school. To help you understand a little more about what exciting options are waiting for you beyond the classroom, we have developed a digitalised Techtrail Toolkit to show you where your interests and strengths may lead you. Choose your favourite subjects, explore the different pathways or let us help you to decide. Sound good? What are you waiting for? Get started, start clicking and explore the possibilities.
Data... good, bad or indifferent?
Together with Bankwest and Startup Grind we are hosting a special event for Data Science Week!
Join us on Thursday, May 17th at 5.30pm, for a panel-style conversation where we will discuss our digital footprint, data as an asset, our decisions around data and digital behaviour. We are excited to host an exceptional mix of panellists that specialise in the data space, who will share their diverse views and real world experiences.
Bring your tricky questions as we will leave plenty of Q&A time - this will be a very interactive panel hosted by our very own Diana Adorno and Startup Grind's Andy Lamb. Food, drinks and wonderful venue provided and sponsored by Bankwest. Thanks to support provided by the Department of Communities for the WiTWA TECHXchange event series in 2018 we are able to offer a number of free tickets to women who are currently studying (part-time or full-time), unemployed or looking to transition into a role within the science or technology sectors.
