Vogue Australia editor-in-chief Edwina McCann has announced key partnerships and events for Vogue Codes 2019.
Vogue Codes returns next week with an expanded program of events and a line-up of local and international speakers to inspire women to be creators of the digital future and encourage female innovation.
Vogue Australia, in partnership with Westpac, is expanding Vogue Codes to four cities in 2019, as the event strives to encourage women to feel empowered by technology.
McCann said: “Vogue has long celebrated women achieving great personal and professional successes and we hope that by providing a platform for some of the world’s most impressive female entrepreneurs and business leaders we will help to challenge the societal norms.
“Our hope is that a successful career in technology will be something future generations won’t think twice about. While the statistics of female participation in tech related roles and industries are improving, they are still not good enough.
“The response to Vogue Codes since we launched the initiative four years ago has been overwhelmingly positive with tickets to this year’s events selling fast and most now sold out. With such exciting things happening in the tech space right across Australia, we are thrilled to be expanding the Vogue Codes initiative to Adelaide and Brisbane this year.
“We’re delighted to have Westpac return as presenting partner for Vogue Codes 2019 along with our returning supporting partner Audi. Through its host of internal initiatives, Westpac supports women and girls in their journey to a successful career in STEM while Audi has a long tradition of driving innovation and positive change throughout its celebrated history.
“We are very pleased to welcome Estée Lauder as a supporting partner this year, a company at the forefront of empowering women in science. Together with our partners, we are committed to making this a highly successful campaign which really makes a difference.”
Westpac’s general manager, business integration, Anastasia Cammaroto said: “We are proud to partner with Vogue Australia on Vogue Codes for the fourth consecutive year to make roles in STEM more attractive to women and girls.
“There is a perception that if you work in STEM, you more than likely specialise in a highly technical field, which can seem unachievable for many.
“Westpac is committed to encouraging women and girls to think about the limitless possibilities that a career in STEM offers by breaking down the stereotypes that are often associated with tech roles.”
