WELCOME TO OUR WORLD

 

Sooo… what can we do about the tech industry? Is the internet broken forever? the tech industry lacks a certain something. enough women in tech.

Only 12% of tech engineers are women,
19% of game developers are women, 
and a tiny 3% of the world’s venture capital goes to women-led companies. Our mission is to teach one million women* technology skills by 2025. Our programs aim to support and increase the number of women in tech. We learn coding, game development, 3D printing, AI, machine learning, drones and new emerging technologies alongside our friends. 


WHAT WE DO

Girl Geek Academy aims to bring one million women and girls into technology careers by 2030

Girl Geek Academy is a social enterprise dedicated to achieving gender equality in the technology industry. We aim to bring one million women and girls into technology careers by 2030 through a range of programs in industries such as games, startups, 3D printing, design, and aviation. Our community is built on the foundation of friendship, learning from one another and sharing career skills and tech tricks. We work to tackle structural issues facing women and girls in technology by influencing families, corporations, government, schools, and the tech community.

FIX THE
FIX THE SYSTEM,
NOT THE GIRLS

The reason gender equity is going backwards in tech is not because of a lack of evaluation of equity programs, it is a lack of investment in the solutions that we already know work.

Girl Geek Academy surveyed over 300 women, men and NB folk in tech for our submission to Minister Husic’s “Diversity in STEM” review.

Girl Geeks say – Enough Talk. Time for action backed by investment.

HACKERS, HUSTLERS AND HIPSTERS!

If technology were a sport, there’d be 3 positions on the team.

No single role is more important than another – all 3 are crucial to tech success!

You may have a favourite role, but knowing all 3 skills makes you stronger. (Just enough to be dangerous!)

Not sure if you’re a hacker, hustler or a hipster, chances are you are more than one – with crossover skills like on our cool Venn diagram!

Let’s collaborate to achieve gender equality




Download our welcome pack!

We LOVE working in technology and understand the perfect tension between art, creativity and tech. There’s a growing audience that’s hungry for content, looking to feel a part of something bigger than themselves- but the fields of science, technology, engineering and maths is notorious for being terrible at marketing themselves.

At Girl Geek Academy we have had great success building a mainstream media profile as “Girl Geeks” – attracting women and young girls into STEM fields. We are able to provide expert opinions on technical issues through op-eds, interviews and regular TV, radio, podcasts and newspapers AND develop and deliver REMOTE LEARNING programs and workshops.
