High iTea is an annual networking event, established to promote gender diversity within the ICT community whilst supporting local charities.

Join us over a scrumptious high tea as guest speakers – Lyn Beazley, Michelle Sandford and Lainey Weiser highlight the contribution of women in ICT and examine the hurdles of gender diversity with practical advice rather than lip service.

The afternoon promises to be filled with a beautiful high tea, free flowing beverages including sparkling wine, prizes, raffles and a silent auction, with all proceeds raised supporting the Starlight Children’s Foundation.
