#GALSNGEAR, which aims to seek parity for women in the technology, media and entertainment industry, has unveiled a new hub offering virtual training and networking.
The Tequity Hub embodies the equation tequity = skills + access + visibility, said the organisation, as well as providing a supportive community, said the organisation.
The training and networking programme, hosted monthly on the #GALSNGEAR website, aims help women seeking to upskill and advance their careers in the industry.
The Tequity Hub is open to all women in the industry — assigned at birth or not — and all industry stakeholders.
“Technology and tools are changing fast in the media and entertainment industries, which means we women might be missing out on a career opportunity or increased pay if we don’t adapt and upskill — whether we are in tech ourselves or managing it,” said #GALSNGEAR founder Amy DeLouise. “On the Tequity Hub, we’re creating a one-stop shop for women looking to upskill. And guess what? A huge amount of this training is free!”
One of the purposes behind Tequity Hub is to ensure that hardware and software companies recognise the value of including women in their beta-testing networks, said #GALSNGEAR, adding that they hope to be the bridge that connects companies to talented women within the community.
Tequity Hub events will take place on the third Tuesday of each month starting August 15th. There are rooms for workshops, demos, and for meetings and networking. Attendees can see active rooms and the users within them and can jump into any room at any time on their own — no one has to move them there.
Upcoming Tequity Hub Events:
- August 15 — Allyship: What Your Organisation Can Do to Promote #Tequity
- September 26 — Opportunities for Women in Sports Broadcasting
- October 17 — How to Become a Beta Tester (and Why It Can Help Your Career)
- November 21 — Public Speaking and How It Helps Your Career, Even If You’re Behind the Camera
