Stone & Chalk’s International Women’s Day Sydney Breakfast
10 March 2021 @ 8:00 am - 9:30 am
As part of the International Women’s Day, Stone & Chalk invite you to an exclusive breakfast at the Innovation hub. Together, we will unpack the stories of four successful women with careers in tech, discussing what it’s been like to work in a traditionally male dominated industry.
Diversity is critical in tech. It allows companies to create safer and superior products through a holistic lens that considers everyone’s needs, not just one section of society. McKinsey found that diverse companies hire stronger talent, perform better, have more engaged employees and retain workers longer than companies that do not focus on diversity and inclusion. Despite this, women are still widely underrepresented in the tech industry and there is a long way to go to change the workplace culture, pay, employment, founder, and retention gaps.
