March 8th: International Women’s Day

3 Mar

We have some pretty incredible women showing up to our monthly dinners. Our discussions are always intelligent, courageous, humorous, insightful and most of all show off the range of personalities and professions amongst us.

There used to be a stigma around anyone working in technology. Digital media has helped break down a lot of barriers because of the range of new progressive roles. From software engineering to online marketing we run the gamete of the technology industry.

On March 8th, the world will celebrate 100 years of progress towards gender equality. International Women’s Day, however, is both a day to celebrate and a day to draw attention to the challenges that remains before gender equality is truly realized.

GGDMelb will be celebrating this significant day by compiling a collection of our individual stories. It could be the story of how we became interested in tech. Or what happened on our first day at our first ‘real’ job. Or how a favourite teacher/professor was instrumental in our career. There are hundreds of moments that lead us on our journey through life, love and learning!

If you’d like more information or would like to submit your own story, please send an email to: ggdmelbourne@gmail.com
