Girls in Tech - Reflections from VIVID Ideas - The Learner's Way - 6 views

    Sydney has become a beacon that brings people together and sparks conversations. Most recently the conversation centred on the topic of girls in tech and what might be done to re-dress the gender balance in STEAM subjects and related career pathways.
