About the Event

Research shows that more males than females enter a career pathway in digitech. Globally women represent just 22 percent in digitech, while in New Zealand only 26 percent are females.

More opp-her-tunities need to be offered to our wahine ākonga to show them that a career integrated with DigiTech is exciting, challenging, rewarding and empowering.

We invite kaiako, and wahine ākonga to come along to engage in a day of Digital Technologies. 

This is for anyone wanting an engaging day around Digital Technologies, and also learners who are looking at how understanding Digital Technologies could add value to their career path. There will also be an opportunity to work with industry professionals and be challenged by their thinking.

Breakouts and Panel

There will be an amazing selection of activities for breakouts and to engage in the panel of experts. To view the full selection visit the DigiGirls page here.

The event is open to ākonga (Year 1-13), whānau, and kaiako.
