The last Go Girl, Go for IT event was held on Thursday 16 August 2018, and was an exciting mixture of interactive presentations, workshops and super workshops, plus a careers tradeshow.
For a sample of what the day was like for the more than 2,000 girls that attended, take a look at our Program Teaser and read below about the different types of workshops and sessions they attended.
Short sessions of 15 minutes, attended by up to 300 people.
Workshops are designed to be interactive sessions of about 45 minutes, which includes time for questions and discussion. They are a chance for around 30 girls to explore hot topics, learn new tech skills, get hands-on with cool gadgets, and see the role IT plays in the workplace.
Also 45 minutes long, super workshops accommodate 100+ students and showcase the amazing things that are possible with a career in IT. Speakers share their personal journeys, passions, inspirations, and views of the future.
As the event focuses on careers, leading employers attend the event to provide advice, insights into their businesses, and of course free show bags for the girls!
