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.

The 3rd annual Australian Community Technology Awards will also be presented at a gala dinner on Monday night (May 11).

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:

Cheryl Kernot – Centre for Social Impact, University of NSW
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
