WIC is proud to host 6 breakfast networking events each year.
Please join us for the fifth breakfast for 2021 in our breakfast series focused on “The Steps We Take”
The topic for this series is “The Steps We Take” on our career journey.
The committee has observed since WIC commenced 21 years ago that in reflection many of our speaker’s career paths within ICT have taken varied, colourful and not always direct routes.
With this in mind, we want to explore more ways in which we can grow and support each other on this path.
We are excited to announce our speaker for this event is Dr Lubna Alam, Associate Professor in Information Systems at Deakin University, Australia.
