It was an amazing event at the 12th Annual Moonee Valley Council Mayoral breakfast organised for international Women's Day. Today's event theme focused on celebration and promotion of gender equity and technology. 
We had a students from MAC join us, including Habon and Nasteho, our Del King Scholars, along with 4 year 9 leaders, teacher Maddy and principal Danni. We also had members and volunteers from the Op Shop attending.
This was a great opportunity for networking, connecting with students and other like-minded individuals. The panelists discussed the increasing importance of technology in our daily lives and the rapid pace of digital transformation which provides for wonderful opportunities to transform our world. However, as the world becomes more digital, it is important to ensure that everyone has access to and can benefit from the opportunities that technology presents.
The speakers were: 
1. Micaela Muscat, who participated in STEM curriculum and was involved in the NASA Coding Program for Women
 2. Creator of digital membership and online community, Women Thriving Together, Natalie Moore,will also be joining our panel
3. Presenter and Producer for Radio 3RRR’s Byte Into IT show, Rowena Murray, will chat to us about her platform
4. Product Analyst for Allens’ Legal Product Lab,Shervie Maramot joins us. Her daily activities are centered in the legal-side of the digital space
Unfortunately, there are still significant gender gaps in the technology industry, from the underrepresentation of women in STEM fields to the gender pay gap in tech jobs.
By focusing on innovation and technology for gender equality, DigitALL seeks to address these disparities and promote greater inclusivity and diversity in the digital space. More specifically, there were conversations on the lack of curriculum in the primary years to introduce and encourage the engagement of students in STEM in an inclusive way. 
On this International Women's Day, I want to extend my warmest wishes to all the incredible women on our team. May you continue to inspire and empower each other as you work towards achieving your goals and making a positive impact in the world. Let us celebrate the  achievements of women and renew our commitment to advancing gender equity and creating a more inclusive and equal world for all."
