Reply To: We are a small organisation focused on running community events supporting women in tech, due to the COVID-19 crisis, we have not been able to run our in-person events. At the same time, we are looking for help with building our website. We would love to get some recommendations on how we can make a successful transition to digital events so that we can continue supporting our communities, and also who we can reach out to regarding help with the website build. Thank you so much for your help!

Agree that simple platforms are easiest and cost-effective. Meetup is a good place to bring together tech communities. There’s a small annual fee and they’ve released info about running online events – https://help.meetup.com/hc/en-us/articles/360040609112

Have you connected with Tech Women NZ which is part of the wider NZ Tech Alliance? – https://techwomen.nz/
