    This is a one-way list for WSG Melbourne Announcements
To Whom it may concern,

I am contacting you to advise of an upcoming Vic ICT for Women event that
may be of interest to your members and broader network.

"The Untapped Workforce: attracting women back into the industry" is
presented by Jackie Cooke, Managing Director of Priorities - Flexible
Employment Strategies, 12.30 - 2pm Thursday 19 July -tickets just $40 for
non members.

The event provides and excellent networking opportunity as well as insight
into how companies can improve flexibility to attract and retain women.

Vic ICT for Women is a non profit networking organisation supporting the
entry, retention and progression of women working in the Information
Communication Technology industry. The Network is a critical link between
government, business, the education sector and other industry associations
to collaborate on, and influence the direction of ICT in Victoria.

It was established in response to a growing acknowledgement by government
and the industry of the declining number of women entering the industry as
well as the impact of current low participation levels on the skills base of
ICT in Victoria. The Network represents a real desire by government,
industry and vendors to 'invest in action' to address the skills gap and
lack of interest in pursuing ICT careers by increasing awareness of the
diversity of ICT roles.

Kind regards
Bianca Brownlow
