This is part of WIC’s inaugural Work Experience Connection Program and will see two students given the opportunity to spend time with the chief information officer at the end of their current term.

In that portfolio, they’ll learn about the AFP’s work in IT management and infrastructure, as well as cyber security.

Rebecca Logue, the AFP’s coordinator of foundation capability, believes that bringing more women into the organisation can only benefit its outcomes.

“The AFP has positioned itself as an employer of choice in this field through its demonstrated commitment to diversity and inclusion,” Logue said.

“For the last seven years, the AFP has run a women in technology initiative to champion, support, recruit and retain women in the field. We strongly believe diversity of thought will create a better outcome for any technical solution.

“We can’t wait to give young female and gender-diverse students the opportunity to see what a dynamic IT portfolio looks like, to meet other women thriving in the IT industry, and to see firsthand how you can have an interesting and diverse career working with technology.”
