ShadowTech provides girls in years 9 -11 with an opportunity to experience what working in the tech sector is like, encouraging them onto education pathways that lead into tech sector roles.
The programme connects secondary school students with people working in the tech sector, who act as mentors, allowing them to experience a day in the life of an IT professional. It educates girls about the wide range of careers and opportunities available to them.
Our objective is to see an increase in the number of females who choose STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) related subjects at a secondary and tertiary level and ultimately choose a career in tech. ShadowTech is run by TechWomen with support from NZTech.
ShadowTech was run in the following regions this year:
Auckland – Friday 7 June
Christchurch – Tuesday 11 June
Palmerston North – Friday 14 June
Dunedin – Tuesday 18 June
Hamilton – Thursday 27 June
