ShadowTech Day 2023

ShadowTech Day 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. 

Secondary school students are paired with a local tech organisation and taken through a “day in the life” experience that has them sitting in on meetings, witnessing the communication and interaction between peers, and seeing what a typical day is like in the tech industry. With women making up only *27 per cent of the IT workforce, starting from only 39 per cent taking NCEA technology at school (*Digital Skills for our Digital Future Report), programmes like this help break down barriers and myths that girls have, that tech is boring and for boys.
