This year’s conference themes will be on the ‘challenges and opportunities in achieving gender equality and the empowerment of rural women and girls’; as well as reviewing the ‘participation in and access of women to the media, and information and communications technologies and their impact on and use as an instrument for the advancement and empowerment of women’.
Both themes touch a personal chord with our CEO Chris Skipper-Conway. Growing up in South Africa she is very aware first-hand of the struggles facing her fellow South African countrywomen. Through her ICT recruitment company GMT People, as well as her position as Chairperson for Vic ICT for Women since 2010, she champions and encourages everyone to further gender equality in order to gain a more balanced IT and digital work place.
