Australian Women in Information Technology

  • Julie Fisher Monash University


In 1992 the first Australian Women in Information Technology (AusWIT) conference took place in Launceston Tasmania with the theme ‘Women in Computing – Keeping the Doors Open’. AusWIT formed with the mission of informing, sharing, community building, and re-energising those involved in the recruitment and retention of women in information technology. Since then the conference has successfully run every two to three years in different states across Australia. As the conference has grown it has attracted women from Europe and elsewhere reflecting the ongoing need for such dialogue to continue. As well, the conference now attracts funding from sponsors such as IBM and Google suggesting a growing recognition of the issues and the field.
