That is all it took for @Girls In Tech Australia (GIT) to have me keen to volunteer. I had just found a place that supported women with an interest in technology, start ups and providing them with a platform to grow.
A year of volunteering with GIT Australia
… allowed me to share a common purpose with others
… welcomed me into a new supportive community
… allowed me to impact others
… gave me opportunities to connect with many people I may have never spoken to
… gave me the ability to utilise my passion and strength in event coordinating, something my day job didn’t require much of
By coordinating events for GIT and helping to run them allowed me to give strangers, soon to be friendly faces, support and the ability to learn and thrive.
GIT is hosting their annual volunteer night this November to welcome volunteers from all areas to join the team. If you are interested register your free ticket here https://www.eventbrite.com.au/e/girls-in-tech-australia-join-the-2019-team-tickets-52065549460.
