Reply to Women’s Agenda with the ACS (attached)
WIC in collaboration with the ACS held a community consultation bringing together a diverse group from our community to have input into the ACT Women’s Plan for 2023. The group highlighted some of the barriers to entering and staying in the Tech Sector workforce as well as some practical suggestions for how we can make the sector more inclusive for women. The main themes discussed were:
- The attraction of women to the profession
- Retention of women to the profession
- Transparency and accountability
WIC is proud to represent the voice of our community to the ACT Government through this consultation so that we can help to impact meaningful change for the current and future Technology workforces.
