Digital Futures

The Digital Futures events, held since 2019, have been a key initiative of the NT Digital Territory Strategy to inspire women to consider a technology career.

Overview

Digital Futures events aspire to encourage more Territory women to take up digital careers. Better technology needs to be created by people with different experiences from all over the world and reflect society as a whole.

“To improve access to digital skills the technology sector needs to expand its talent pool and tap into underutilised talent - namely women. This will be critical to longer term industry growth.”

“In 2020, women made up just 29% of the technology workforce.” - ACS Australia’s Digital Pulse 2021.

On Wednesday 25 August 2021, over 175 attendees donned their headphones and streamed the Driving Digital Innovation webinar to hear from four successful 'digital women' who shared their ideas and experiences, challenges and successes.
