FITT presents the 2017 International Women’s Day Luncheon
‘Celebrating the Digital Frontier’
It’s no secret that Information Technology is one of the most pervasive, if not THE most pervasive industry today.
At home, in the office, in the car, in the supermarket, bank or gym – Information Technology is everywhere.
It’s pretty easy then to draw the conclusion that there are lots of really cool jobs out there in the IT and digital space and that skills in STEM can take you pretty much anywhere you want to go in your career.
This year, FITT is ‘celebrating the digital frontier’ and our IWD luncheon series will feature a number of people with cool carers and super cool outlooks when it comes to the opportunities that our industry presents… and where they see the future of digital heading.
We invite you to join with hundreds of people across the ICT industry to hear about the digital future from the eyes of a rocket scientist, a leading Group CIO of an ASX listed organisation, inspirational inventors and more… They’re the people of today who are pushing the boundaries for tomorrow.
So, come and celebrate International Women’s Day 2017 with the FITT community and be part of the discussion about how we can all join together to ‘celebrate the digital frontier’ and in doing so, build a greater, brighter and more exciting future for our industry, locally and globally.
There will also be opportunities to network – both over the sumptuous lunch and during our networking breaks.
The FITT IWD luncheon events sell out each year, so we encourage you to get your tickets before they’re all gone. Be part of IWD 2017 – and Celebrate the Digital Frontier!

FITT is delighted to have the support of two wonderful speakers for both our 2017 Sydney and Melbourne International Women’s Day events. We’re sure you will be inspired by the stories of how they’re making their way in the digital world of today... and what they anticipate is around the corner in this space.
Solange Cunin is a 23-year-old, self-confessed space geek who grew up ‘off the grid’ on her parents’ farm in northern NSW. She was given her first telescope at the age of eight and told herself at fourteen that she would become an aerospace engineer. However, it wasn’t until she watched the live stream of a SpaceX rocket launch four years later that she knew her long fascination with space would become a reality.
Solange has three years’ experience in the space industry including roles in management, research and operations.
We are also pleased to announce Kelly Ferguson, CIO at Origin Energy as our second keynote speaker. Before joining Origin Energy, Kelly was the CIO for ninemsn and prior to that, was the Head of Technology Commercial Operations and Business Applications at Mi9. Kelly has also worked for Phillips as the Support Services Group Manager – Australia, and Microsoft as the Business Support Group Manager for APAC CSS.
