Digital Futures

The Digital Futures events, held on the 29 May 2019 at the Darwin Convention Centre, were a key initiative in the Digital Territory Strategy's Action Plan to encourage women to consider a career in technology.

At present only around 28% of tech roles are held by women. More than 300 people attended the youth and women’s events and were exposed to never before seen augmented reality displays, digital displays, panel discussions, exhibition booths and a range of inspiring speakers. More than 80% of attendees said they learnt more about the digital world and diverse career paths from attending this event.
