Tracking the tracks at Tech Ed New Zealand


Women in Technology dinner at Tech Ed New Zealand 2007

I stopped by the Women in Technology dinner to snap some pictures - what a sight! According to Helen Robinson, Microsoft New Zealand General Manager, about 10% - 15% of this year's Tech Ed New Zealand are women. And almost 100% were there at the Women in Technology dinner (plus some male guests).

Below you see Helen saying the welcome to all those women (click for a larger version):

I have been to 9 TechEd's in either South Africa, UK & USA but this was my 1st Women In Technology session & definately stands out to all the other ones. A session created just for WOMEN is very motivating for future female growth in the industry.
