Women in Tech bring the MBAX Factor to AGSM
Tuesday, 1 September 2015
AGSM @ UNSW Business School celebrated the official launch of the MBAX program by hosting a positive, future-focused discussion with a panel of female leaders on the topic of women in technology.
The new Michael Crouch Innovation Centre, with its cutting edge facilities provided the perfect backdrop for the robust discussion which was facilitated by Associate Dean of Digital & Innovation at UNSW Business School, Professor Nick Wailes. From disruptive startups to global corporations in the digital space, AGSM Alumni Maureen Murphy and Zina Kaye were joined on the panel by Sarah Parton from Commonwealth Bank to offer insights into how they have each used technology as a platform to succeed, why the industry is lacking female leaders and how we can address this in the changing face of education.
Guests included a diverse group of students, alumni and faculty, including those from the Master of Business & Technology (MBT) program, who helped pioneer the development of the MBAX.
The event was also an opportunity for Professor Julie Cogin, Director of AGSM to announce the
Robyn Denholm Women in Technology Scholarship The scholarship has been established to encourage women to undertake the AGSM MBAX specialising in Technology with the hopes of appealing to women trying to manage busy career and family lives.
