The Go Girl, Go for IT 2016 team is made up of 9 streams which will be introduced through in a series of blog posts.

Part 3:  Event Program team.

The 2016 Go Girl,Go for IT event aims to excite and engage female high school students by introducing them to the vast range of global, lucrative and varied career options in IT. The event will focus on inspiring students with fantastic role model speakers, showcasing latest technologies, getting some hands on experience and challenging any preconceptions of a career in IT! The Go Girl Go for IT Event Program itself requires careful planning and exceptional communication in order to achieve this ambitious goal.

The role of the Event Program team is to help shape the day by working with our sponsors and partners to craft an exciting line up of content for the girls to experience. The team plan out the structure of the sessions occurring on the day including who is speaking about what along with when and where they will need to be. There are a lot of logistics involved in running the day including the movements of the girls, teachers and the speakers. The team are very much focused on ensuring that everyone has clear view of where they need to be any given time and what exciting things they can expect on the day! And don’t worry, we’ve planned some break times in their too so everyone can share their stories with each other J

The Event Program team liaise with the program speakers to help them finesse their presentations/workshops. The aim is to make sure the girls will have a fun, engaging and on point experience which gets them excited about a career in IT!

Our awesome team is made up of 9 super-talented IT professionals from all different backgrounds and levels of experience, and who have themselves entered IT in a range of ways!  Each member volunteers an amazing amount of time and skill to support the Event Program while still doing their normal day job and juggling their daily lives and commitments. The team are very much looking forward to bringing together the best Go Girl program yet!
