International Women's Day Luncheon

Over 350 people joined together to celebrate the success, leadership and influence achieved by women in the Australian ICT industry on International Women's Day 8 March 2006. Photographs of the event are available on the FITT website

The speakers were Senator the Hon Helen Coonan, Minister for Communications, Information Technology and the Arts, Michelle Tredenick, National Australia Bank's CIO and Caroline Heinze, Nortel's National Manager, Enterprise Channels & Marketing for Australia & NZ. You can find Sen Coonan's speech here.

I hosted a Microsoft corporate table, and it was a rare opportunity to gather 10 of my very favourite female architects that I work with in the one place, in addition to those ladies from Sydney, Lois and Susan even came up from NZ and Melbourne respectively! We had a great time chatting about careers/babies/life in general! I'm definitely going to host another table at the next FITT event!
