New collaboration focuses on getting more women in tech

20 Oct 2017

There’s a new collaboration in Australia and it’s all about helping women catapult their digital skills and futureproof their careers.

The Australian College of Marketing is collaborating with the Digital Women’s Network to offer new short courses aimed to provide the latest skills across all aspects of the digital landscape.

Kicking off next year in Melbourne and Sydney, the one-day courses will provide practical training ready for immediate implementation, such as digital planning and strategy skills and how to use analytical tools.

Emma Blackburn, principal at The Australian College of Marketing, comments, “We’re thrilled to be partnering with the Digital Women’s Network to help young women differentiate themselves in the ever-evolving marketing industry, and take control of their own careers.”

“The digital marketing skillsets on offer are highly transferrable and will open doors to new career opportunities and experiences for participants both in Australia and globally.”

The price per participant will be $495 per day, and spaces will be limited to 20 to ensure tailored approaches to each participants’ needs.

All courses will aim to help participants accelerate their career, while developing the most in-demand digital skills of today’s and tomorrow’s employers.

Starting from February 17, 2018, the courses will take place on Saturdays, every two months in Melbourne and Sydney.

Created by women for women, the Digital Women’s Network was founded in 2016 and now includes over 25,000 members.
