What would the internet look like if there were more women building it?
Girl Geek Academy is teaching one million women
to learn technology by 2025.
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 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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
