Last time around, Techtorium hosted around 60 secondary school students for a day of guest speakers, Jacinda Ardern of the New Zealand Labour Party and Akesha Tangitua of MyRepublic to discuss why the young women of New Zealand should see IT as a career pathway.
A variety of activities and networking as well made for a very successful day! This time we are looking to double the numbers to provide more young women of New Zealand with the opportunity to learn and discuss how to study and enter the IT industry.
