Girl Geek Academy is a movement teaching one million women technology skills by 2025. We increase technical aspirations in young girls and women from ages five to 95 through coding, making, entrepreneurship, game development, startup skills and more. We partner with teachers, parents, corporate leaders and governments and we all work together to see women and girls succeed in tech.

Tech has a pipeline problem.

Let’s talk about the holes in the pipe.

By the age of 6, children classify jobs as male and female.

By the age of 8, they are limiting aspirations

By 13 they rule out careers that don’t fit with gender stereotypes.

And 60% of girls aspire to stereotypically ‘female’ jobs by the ages of 16-17.

We want to know:
What would the internet look like if there were
more women and girls building it?

If you’re here to learn how to increase the number of women
and girls in technology careers, you’ve come to the right place.

So how do we solve this problem?

We start by changing the lives of young girls right now.

From ages 5 and up

We can help you support young girls in primary schools, libraries and workplaces to inspire them at a crucial time in their lives. We build corporate education programs and teacher training for schools and libraries for young girls ages 5-8.

Upper primary school

By upper primary school, girls want to build with technology. We create programs that teach technical skills to young girls ages 9-12 to make the most of their curiosity and passion.

Work experience in high school

We can all picture a scientist or a hairdresser at work. But what does a technologist at work look like? We work with corporates to build on-site work experience programs and in-school career planning programs to inspire young women in Grades 9 and 10 to choose technology electives in Grade 11 and 12.

Growing university networks

We work with Australian universities and major corporates to build clubs and societies for women in STEM. We also specialise in delivering hackathons, game jams and work placements at companies in technology and games.

But to achieve gender equality, we must also support women in industry to succeed and to lead.

Not simply survive, but thrive.

Early-career industry support

For early career practitioners we focus on networking, career planning and mentoring to ensure we retain women in industry in a sustainable way. We also run career incubators for women in various industries.

Mid career development

For mid-career practitioners we support women to be bold and raise their profile, coach them on closing the gender pay gap and develop their ability to role model the next generation.

More women in senior executive leadership roles

Increasing the number of women building their own tech company

Let’s work together to increase the number of women and girls in tech, games, making, robotics, 3D printing, aviation, drones and space.
