Leadership Hacks aims to crowd source real world solutions to help Australian companies promote and hire more women into senior tech leadership roles.
On Thursday 2nd October 2014, 100 leaders from Australia’s top Corporates and their suppliers came together to develop innovative new ideas to significantly increase the number of women in tech careers. Guided by some of Melbourne’s most creative facilitators, the evening unleashed the minds of a lively cross section of men and women working within the key fields that shape IT career paths; finance, procurement, recruitment, education, IT Operations, HR and professional services.
We captured all the amazing energy in the room, the light bulb moments, the joy of community, and that moment where you realise, you are not alone with a specific problem. Watch all the YouTube clips on our Leadership Hacks channel.
Together, we have developed many great ideas. The prezi below gives you a great overview.
