FITT Executive Roundtables – Invite only for Corporate Sponsor Executives
Following the success of the first set of roundtable discussions in Sydney throughout 2015, FITT will be continuing this initiative in Sydney and Melbourne throughout 2017.
Roundtables promote informed discussion and debate concerning the current state of diversity within the IT industry, work currently in progress or the particular problems involved in the employment of new approaches. The roundtable format lends itself to open discussion in an atmosphere where participants provide their points of view and engage the audience in active discussion.
The roundtable is aimed at Senior HR and IT Executives within our corporate sponsors, with 15 being the ideal number of participants. We invite them to share thoughts, challenges, exchange ideas, and discuss current trends and other hot topics in diversity today.
Corporate sponsors are given the opportunity to co-host a roundtable at their offices alongside a FITT representative, who takes full responsibility in coordinating the event.
Previous roundtable topics have included:
- How to build a more gender diverse pipeline entering the IT industry (co-hosted with CBA)
- How to increase the number of women in leadership positions (co-hosted with Oakton)
- How does your parental leave policy affect the ability to attract and retain top female talent (co-hosted with Cisco)
The roundtable topics for 2017 are to be determined with the corporate sponsors co-hosting the events and will be held on quarterly basis in Sydney and based on demand in Melbourne.
