Calling all Geek Girls

Here’s something for all the Australia-based Geek Girls out there. I know that you’re all as good as or better than your male counterparts. Unfortunately an often female-blind media rarely gives you the credit you deserve.

Females in Technology and Telecommunications (FITT) has launched a trial mentoring program that will:

…[support] two of FITT’s primary objectives:

  • Inspire women in the industry to achieve their personal aspirations
  • Assist women to broaden their understanding of the ICT industry.

This strikes me as a great way to encourage more professional development and attract more smart women to the IT industry. So, if you’re interested in mentoring, or being mentored, jump over to FITT and sign on!
