Next month, Go1 is hosting WomenHack’s Brisbane event, and we’re very proud to be involved in such a great initiative.

WomenHack is a community that aims to empower women in tech by facilitating access and transparency in the industry. The global initiative aims at bridging the IT gender gap and giving women additional opportunities to succeed in tech.

At Go1, we believe it’s important to empower women working in traditionally male-dominated industries, such as the tech and startup industries.

In both of these areas, there has long been an imbalance of gender, with the number of male employees outweighing women. Like the founders of WomenHack, we believe tech companies must take positive action to address this gender imbalance.

That’s why we’re so pleased to be working with WomenHack to host this event – and encourage you to get involved!

What to Expect from a WomenHack Event

The WomenHack events are invite-only recruiting events, focused on connecting top female software engineers, UI/UX designers, and product managers with opportunities at tech companies around the world.

Attendees can expect to meet up to twenty companies in two hours, through rapid five-minute interviews in a pressure-free, fun environment. This way, you’ll get the chance to meet with the top tech companies in your city – but more importantly, the top tech companies that believe in diversity and are committed to advancing women in the workplace.

Discover Companies that Empower Women

Host and sponsors will also present five-minute keynotes at the beginning of the event, to address the women in tech community and share more about their gender diversity initiatives and efforts as an organisation.

Fiona Lau, WomenHack’s Manager of Strategic Partnerships & Global Growth, says that women in tech, itself, is a pretty niche market – so the organisation tends to invite a good mix of candidates with varied backgrounds.

“We target mid-career women in tech who are developers, product managers, and UI/UX designers with at least an average of three to six years of experience. We definitely do see some women in tech in different specialisations, from testers to security to marketing/sales as well as junior talents … since we're in the business of enabling women in tech and giving them access to opportunities, we try to be as open and accessible to all.”
