Women in Creative Tech – Yoobee Panel Discussion

High profile women working in the creative technology space Candice Phelps (host), Jenny Adams, Felicity Donaldson, and Charlotte Wooster gathered to inspire Yoobee students for International Women’s Day earlier this month.

Jenny Adams is a front-end web developer, Felicity owns a ceramic making business and Charlotte is the marketing coordinator for Cupa Dupa and other Wellington based festivals.

The panel discussion centred around each of their different journeys in the creative arena, how they got there, what decision making skills they’ve learnt, and how they attempt the work / life balance.

The overriding sentiment was that the time is right for more women to be getting into the tech industries.  Teams always stronger when they are diverse.  Yoobee students found it an invaluable networking opportunity and were inspired to follow their passion, work hard and not let a few hiccups stop them!
