REA Hosted Girl Geek Dinner
In the USA, Girl Geek Dinners follow a pretty awesome format. Girl Geeks go and visit a different business each month and learn more about how they operate and what their vision for the future is.
I'm excited that we have the opportunity to visit the realestate.com.au Richmond office and learn how they use Agile. This meetup includes a tour of the office, a discussion where we will explore your ideas for how the technology industry can attract and engage a higher number of women, and we will conclude with a delicious sit-down dinner at Fenix Events in Richmond.
Tickets are a small cost, $10, to ensure that everyone who says they will attend comes along. All money raised will go towards running events in the future.
Hope to see you there!
Join REA Group for its first hosted Girl Geek Dinner, which will incorporate a facilitated fishbowl panel that will aim to engage participants in the notion of Nature vs. Nurture in relation to the selection of a career in IT.
We will explore the specific elements of the IT industry that women appear to be particularly attracted to, and discuss beliefs and opinions surrounding these elements of attraction.
We also hope to provide an environment where you can voice your opinions and beliefs on what companies in Australia, including REA Group, should be or could be doing to attract and engage a higher number of women to developing rewarding careers in the IT industry. Also of interest is how you believe companies like REA Group could better foster and develop the skills of women already within the IT industry.
In conjunction with the dinner component of this event REA Group is also offering an Agile Office Tour of its premises prior to the dinner, which we encourage all attendees who are interested in agile ways of working to attend.
REA owns and operates the leading real estate and commercial property advertising sites in Australia, realestate.com.au and realcommercial.com.au, as well as international real estate advertising sites such as the market-leading Italian property site, casa.it.
