Women remain under-represented in innovation, technology and leadership roles both nationally and internationally. Yet the sector continues to experience exponential growth and face challenges attracting skilled talent, particularly graduates and women.
The Fantail Network is an ambitious and innovative network supporting and encouraging more women to enter and succeed in their chosen careers. - with a particular focus on technology, innovation and entrepreneurship.
FOUNDED AND SUPPORTED BY WOMEN IN THE KNOW
Jane Kennelly, founder of Frog Recruitment and chair of the Workchoice Trust, and Kathy McCombe, former CEO of the Workchoice Trust, recognised a need to support, connect and engage women at all career stages: entrepreneurs, intrapreneurs, designers, creators, inventors, corporates to business owners, from technology to the creative sector. Fantail Network provides opportunities for mentoring, internships and collaboration with other vibrant and like-minded organisations.
Market analysis spanning education providers, TIN100 companies, business clients and candidates confirmed there was clearly a place for the Fantail Network. Launched in June 2014 to connect with an authentic, inclusive genuine group of people who are motivated to promote women’s interests in technology, innovation and entrepreneurship.
