What

Join us for the next Wāhine in Tech Wellington event for an engaging discussion about careers in tech.

We have gathered a group of kick ass women for the discussion panel, all of whom have had really interesting journeys in the tech industry. Come armed with your own questions or discussion points, and let’s get the conversation started.

Is the tech industry a welcoming place for women? What kind of treatment should be expected? What does success look like? How do we make it a better space in which to progress and flourish? How do we make it more inclusive for underrepresented people?

About our panellists:

aurynn shaw
aurynn is the founder of Eiara, a DevOps consultancy based out of Wellington, New Zealand, focussing on helping clients develop technical DevOps capability, and the cultural knowledge to use it.

With over a decade as a professional software developer, aurynn’s expertise ranges from modern cloud deployments to massively parallel supercomputer environments.

As the defining voice of the ideas of “contempt culture”, aurynn is working to change the very nature of how we create new technologies, and the questions that we must answer as we do.

Hiria Te Rangi
Hiria loves her community and loves technology, so Kaiwhakahaere (CEO) for WhareHauora was a natural role for her.

With 15 years in tech with numerous technical and business roles in open data, open source, digital technologies and infrastructure, Hiria relishes the middle ground that Whare Hauora holds for Aotearoa.

Whare Hauora’s ability to go into a Marae, Community centres or schools to teach low income families about Whare Sensors, how to build them and how they can help whānau make informed decisions about how their home affects their health, brilliantly marries Hiria’s two loves and she is very happy to talk to you about them.

Tamara Buckland
Tamara is a passionate people and culture consultant in the tech industry with a background in entrepreneurship, service design and delivery, and people leadership. She balances consulting with working part time for CoLiberate, a local business delivering Mental Health First Aid training. Tamara brings a mental health and wellbeing focus to her work in the tech industry, and is particularly interested in how we can support people in marginalised groups
