About WiTWA[+]

Held on Thursday 24 October at the Hyatt Regency Perth, the day will be filled with stories of ingenuity, adversity and triumph from some extraordinary local, national and international role models in the tech[+] space so all attendees can expand their idea of what’s possible.

The day also includes stories from companies striving to achieve diversity and equality in tech[+] industries, some professional-development style learning and an abundance of opportunities for WA’s tech[+] community to engage with each other throughout the day.

Our exhibitors area will offer plentiful opportunities for delegates to learn more about our sponsors and access some of their services.

At the end of the day, we will induct our inspiring 2019 role models and celebrate our Tech[+] 20 and individual awards winners. For more information, see:
