The community technology conference Connecting Up is underway in Sydney (May 11-12) and a keynote speaker will present a case for the "Impostor Syndrome" as a key reason women do not embrace success in IT careers.

Jody Mahoney, Vice President, Business Development, at the Anita Borg Institute for Women and Technology (anitaborg.org), discusses the syndrome, reported by many successful women that they often feel as if their achievements are a fluke.

Tracey Fellows, managing director of Microsoft; Google Australia’s head of engineering, Alan Noble; and Martin Stewart-Weeks, Chair of the Australia Social Innovation Exchange, join the international speaker lineup, which also includes:

Mark Pesce – Social network guru, writer, New Inventors panelist
Monique Potts – Digital Media Project Manager at the ABC
Peter Deitz – founder and Executive Director of socialactions.com
Allen Gunn – Executive Director Aspiration aspirationtech.org
