“Future skills in a new digital world: How to enable and inspire the next generation” by WITWA

Change has been a constant throughout history, but unlike previous “revolutions”, the new digital dawn we are experiencing is a seismic shift with a rate of change, complexity and scope never seen before. Advances in technology are transforming every aspect of our lives, from the way we work to the way we communicate and access services. Women in Technology WA (WITWA) focus heavily on the themes of industry and organisational transformation, technology trends and workforce diversity. Part of this conversation requires us to consider how to best champion the skills future generations will require to be able to fully participate and make the most of the opportunities the jobs of the future will present to them.

As a Perth based, not for profit network organisation WITWA is a proud champion of diversity and equality for women in technology, with a mission to promote and encourage the entry and retention of women in roles within the technology and STEM industries.  This presentation will provide an overview of effective programs implemented to shift the dial, enable and inspire.

Pia has been a member of the Women in Technology WA Committee since 2014 and held the role of Chair for the past 2 years. Managing a portfolio career, Pia holds a number of positions which are connected through a common focus on the opportunities which innovation, disruption and diversification offer.
