TechWeek Monday 076 v2

It's no secret that we have a gender gap in Aotearoa New Zealand's tech sector. Research NZTech undertook last year identified that our tech sector consists of just 29% women. 

The team at TechWomenNZ have combed through more than 250 events in the Techweek24 programme to identify the best ones to encourage more women into tech and close our gender gap. Check them out below.
