Imagine a gender-equal world. A world free of bias, stereotypes, and discrimination. A world that’s diverse, equitable, and inclusive. A world where difference is valued and celebrated. Together we can forge women’s equality. Collectively we can all #EmbraceEquity.

Very pleased to hear the strong voices and different takes presented by successful women in the industry

They are interested in becoming controls, automation, integrated design, and cybersecurity specialists and have the aptitude, attitude and appetite to succeed. As an industry, we need to;

  1. Provide opportunities for professional development: Tech companies can offer training and development programs that focus on technical skills, leadership, and career advancement.
  2. Address unconscious bias: Tech companies can address unconscious bias in the hiring process by implementing blind resume screenings, diverse hiring panels, and inclusive job descriptions.
  3. Offer flexible work arrangements: Tech companies can offer flexible work arrangements, such as remote work and flexible schedules, to accommodate the needs of working mothers and women who may have caregiving responsibilities.

Ahead of International Women’s Day 2023, Australian female tech entrepreneurs say growing social and environmental needs will drive capital to traditionally underserved markets — and women founders finally stand to benefit. 

Kerri Lee Sinclair has a new investment hypothesis.

And if the founder and non-executive director, who has spent over 20 years working across the country’s high-growth ecosystem, is right, the Australian entrepreneurial landscape is set for transformation. 

“We’re heading into a new economy, which is going to prioritise sustainability,” says Sinclair, chair of the women’s tech accelerator SBE Australia and a non-executive director of tech startups including Versent, AgriDigital and SPEE3D. She also co-founded the startup music platform AgentArts, which was sold to Microsoft in 2007. 

“That’s the opportunity because if you look at it as an investor, your best returns come from an underserved market. If the underserved market is known to outperform, and you want to support economic complexity in a gender-balanced way, this is where the money’s going to go.”
