[ONLINE] ACS Panel Session: Pioneering your future in STEM
21 October 2021 @ 12:30 pm - 1:30 pmFree
One of the major findings of the ACS Australia’s Digital Pulse report in 2021 was that increasing gender diversity in the technology workforce would grow Australia’s economy by $1.8 billion every year on average, over the next 20 years.
This event aims at spotlighting established women in the ICT sector and supporting women already working in STEM.
Join this inspiring conversation between our facilitator and panelists, sharing their experience and words of advice for their fellow ICT workers, young and established.
Facilitator Theresa Anderson will conduct a discussion with panelists, including addressing distinguished Professor Fang Chen who has vast experience in many segments of industry, governments and academia on digital transformation. Professor Chen will provide a glimpse into how technology fits within the social, political and economic landscape, and share some of her remarkable achievements. Helen McHugh will share how a non-IT background, specifically, training in librarianship, can contribute to a human-centered understanding that is critical for making IT systems work in any organisation. Dorotea Baljevic will provide further insights with her strong background in IT as a systems engineer, along with her current pursuits in building the international Data Science Practice at Lendlease. Her study of masters-level data science and pursuit of a PhD in ethical decision-making promises a great conversation.
The event will feature a Q&A session where the audience will be able to ask their questions to the panel.
