Featuring: Suzanne Hunt
Sr Systems Analyst


Speaker info
Suzanne has been in the IT industry for 15 years ranging across frontend and backend support, administration and system configuration and development roles. Having worked in both technical and development roles, this has given her a broad base of skills and the ability to work with a diverse range of clients. She has an applied interest in all things web-based, in particular SharePoint and the Microsoft 365 stack, having both administration and development experience across the product range from portal 2003, 2007, 2010, 2013 and Office 365. Suzanne has applied her SharePoint and Microsoft 365 knowledge and capability for enterprise environments ranging across the following sectors Dairy, Construction, Forestry, Finance, Education and Manufacturing. Suzanne is enthusiastic about helping community groups, having been part of the team that setup the Enderly Computer Clubhouse as well as the chairperson of the governing board. More recently she has taken up a position on the Web Access Waikato Trust and has been volunteering with Hospice Waikato for over 10 years

Session info
Over the last 15 years a lot has changed in the world of Technology, but one thing hasn’t: virtually no women are employed in the technical fields. I will talk about my experience growing up in New Zealand, how I got got involved in the field and what is being done here to attract more females to the industry. Is the gender pay gap real? Do women really face the issues that are in the media? This talk is wide ranging and will hopefully spark an interest in everyone to do one thing to improve the situation for everyone.
