FitT Newsbytes

Greetings <<First Name>> <<Last Name>>,

After a whirlwind March, Autumnal April has already rolled by – and Easter and Anzac Day school along with it. We now find ourselves in the month of May, and a Federal Election is looming along with EOFY. This edition of the FitT Newsbytes will help ready you for the busy months ahead, and hopefully ignite some embers of inspiration for your career in the lead up to cooler months. We’ve got coverage of the 2019 FitT IWD events, the FitT 2018 Diversity Report, and some great articles from our sponsors AGL and Motorola.

Finally, we have information on our Mentoring Program, and upcoming events. We hope you enjoy this edition – and hope you stay warm, stay dry, and stay inspired for the winter ahead!


With 447 attendees in Melbourne and 439 in Sydney at our 2019 IWD day events in March, we couldn’t be more thrilled with the turnout and quality of speakers and panelists at this year’s events. Watch the video highlights here.


The proportion of women in technology and telco firms has dropped a worrying 6% in the last year, according to FiTT 2018 Diversity Report and also recently highlighted in a story with The Australian. Read more
