Welcome to Importance of Women in IT.
We’ve got a brand new look

The “Importance of Women in IT’ series is a morning speaker event for our members and their guests, where we ask inspiring women and men in Information Technology or related fields, to share their experiences about the job they do now, how they got to where they are, the challenges they faced, the pitfalls they experienced along the way and the successes celebrated.

The series is designed to give our members and guests the opportunity to:

  • Gain an understanding of what is possible
  • Get ideas on how to progress their career
  • Consider different career opportunities and alternatives
  • Hear real life experiences on how to deal with some of the challenges that face women in the workforce and
  • Gain different and/or new perspectives on the IT industry
  • Meet people and expand their network

Personal Agility System – Priorities Map Workshop

Are you doing what you want to be doing? Are you becoming the person you want to be? How do you figure out what really matters?

We are all aware of time management as a key skill, but how about life management? Are we dedicating enough time to reflect and choose what we want to focus on?

Sometimes, the boat of our life starts to drift away from the goal, do we then reset our course or let the winds take us away?

Are we consciously applying the prioritisation lens on our life? And if so, who is helping us choose the right things?

In the times of COVID-19, these questions matter more than ever. We all think we are doing the things that truly matter the most.

In this workshop, we try to find out answers to questions like these, which help us build our life’s journey route and stay on it.
