A Psychosocial Approach to Investigating Women’s Wellbeing in New Zealand’s Tech Industry

Are you a woman working in tech and keen to be a part of a research initiative aimed at improving the experience and outcomes for women in tech?

Dr Natalia D’Souza, Lecturer and associate Professor Kaye Thorn are part of a research team based in the School of Management at Massey University. Their research explores how the design and management of work (termed ‘psychosocial factors’) impacts on the work experiences and wellbeing of women in New Zealand’s tech industry, with a view toward improving these outcomes. As part of this project they are hoping to interview around 30 women about their careers in tech.

If you identify as a woman working in the tech industry and have been in your current role for at least six months, they would love to speak with you about your career within the industry, understanding that your work may have also been impacted recently due to Covid19. Your participation in this study will be completely anonymous and will involve a 30-45 minute interview via phone/Skype/Zoom, at your convenience.
