About our Programmes
At Vic ICT for Women, we pride ourselves on creating programs that inform and support women right from school age all the way to the top. We want to ensure your enthusiasm for ICT is encouraged, nurtured and passed along to the next generation of women through events and programs structured to help at each stage in your journey.
Despite 70% growth of ICT jobs since 1996, women account for only 16% of ICT roles.
The Victorian ICT for Women Network is an industry-driven initiative which aims to facilitate entry, retention and progression for women working in ICT.

Importance of Women in IT
“I 100% now believe that there’s a place for me in the IT industry.”Gilmore College for GirlsGo Girl, Go for IT has been successfully introducing girls from year 7 to 11 to the world of technology and enthusing them about a career and education in IT. Achieving a record number of over 1400 girls in 2014 from over 42 Victorian schools, we run this truly unique event every two years. Currently hosted at Deakin University, Go Girl, Go for IT is designed like an innovative trade fair, with sponsors from many industries and businesses running interactive workshops and stands to showcase the vast opportunities available within the IT industry. Guest speakers offer inspiration to this future generation via interactive sessions and in 2016 we have the amazing Sophie Blachford from Instagram as our ambassador. Travel to the event is also subsidized so no girl misses out.
