Join us for the November Female Influencers in Tech Melbourne MeetUp on Monday 18 November from 5:30pm at the Contino offices.

Drinks, nibbles and some great conversations will be available at the event - we hope to see you there!

We are excited to announce our speaker for the November MeetUp!

Tanya Windscheffel (Platform Development Manager at MYOB) will be doing a talk on female leadership and the challenges parenthood brings before and after you have a child. The mental load on new parents and what you can be doing to make it easier as a leader.

Following that, there will be a panel discussion.

Four female tech leaders who have four different stories of how they landed in tech roles will discuss the below:

- Myth busting the need to be technical in technical leadership roles
- Sharing the different journeys into tech leadership
- Playing to your strengths and being proud of them
- Don't be shy in asking for what you want
- Diversity at MYOB, sharing information on their DevelopHER program and other programs to support women.

On the panel:

★ Allira Andreoni - Development Lead @ MYOB
★ Aroha Kaa - Development Lead @ MYOB
★ Yvonne OKeeffe - Development Lead @ MYOB
★ Tanya Windscheffel - Platform Development Manager @ MYOB

The event will close with a Q&A to the 4 leaders and ask them for advice / tips & tricks.

See you there!
