Following the success of the US and Europe #WomenITPros monthly calls, I'm thrilled to announce we're starting our own series of virtual meetups here in the Asia Pacific region!
#WomenITPros was established to connect women in technical roles other than software/application development, within the I.T. industry. You might create or support platforms and infrastructure that the code runs on, manage projects, create technical documentation, or be a product marketing manager. You might work for a vendor, partner or customer. If your day to day role does not involve application coding, you might feel at home with this tribe!
Our APAC calls will be held at midday on the 4th Thursday of each month, starting on the 25th July 2019. Recordings will be available inside the member resources for those who register with techcommunity.microsoft.com (free). Meetings are open to anyone of all gender identities who wants to support women in the ITPro field.
For our first call, Microsoft Premier Field Engineer @Jess Dodson and I will introduce ourselves and give you a sneak peek at some of the topics we have coming up on the call calendar. We'll be monitoring the chat, so come and tell us what you'd like to see being discussed and who you'd like to see as guest speakers.
Please share this link with anyone in the industry who you think might be interested!

And finally, don't be shy, come over and introduce yourself!

I am SO EXCITED to see this!! I'll start tagging the US things so everyone can tell which region. Europe calls have been on hold, pending someone to take the lead on organizing there, but super happy to see APAC online!
