Go Girl Go IT conference

On Tuesday, 13th of October, myself, Chloe M and Hiruni W, year 7 students from Buckley Park College attended the Go Girl Go IT Conference; a day to celebrate women in IT and inspire young girls who express an interest.

Reflection on IT conference

Speakers from all over Australia and overseas attended the virtual conference to brief us on their profession, these professionals varied from rocket scientists to software developers. Despite the fact that the conference was conducted virtually on Zoom, the organizers made sure that each student ended the day by learning something new, whether it was related to IT or women in general. I thoroughly enjoyed the conference and met many inspiring women who have made a huge difference in their respected fields. I recommend this to every girl who is interested in learning more about IT and related fields. It encourages girls to explore options, to think about their future, meet people, enter competitions and win prizes. I am looking forward to the next conference.

Kind regards, Anvita Mehta (Year 8)
