AN OPEN LETTER FROM THE GIRLEDWORLD FOUNDERS
SO THAT'S US. UP THERE. FAR RIGHT.
Next to a fountain. Hatted, exhausted, exhilarated, graduating with our Master of Entrepreneurship after a massive year of learning, rising, falling, failing, upskilling, brazening, building and launching girledworld at the University of Melbourne in 2016.
The extraordinary people we learned from, leaned on and worked alongside at the Wade Institute of Entrepreneurship, Melbourne Business School, Faculty of Business and Economics and in the 2016 Masters cohort shaped us and fuelled us in ways we're still unpacking. It is amazing watching what we're all doing now.
Since launching girledworld, it's been quite a ride.
Startups are like that. They take you up and down, a thousand times a day.
But we can't believe how far we've come. And where we're going.
And we know we wouldn't be where we are without a thriving village of awesomeness around us.
This year brings VERY big things.
A scalable platform product build in the US next month (watch this space!), keynotes and conferences around the country, collaborations, partnerships, meeting after meeting after late night after interns after team hires after snatched sleep after juggling kids and jobs and big vision and never enough hours in any given day.
But we do it. Like this. BECAUSE WE FOUND A BLOODY GOOD PROBLEM TO SOLVE.
We're building a new generation of girls who can UNLEASH THEIR POTENTIAL TO step up, start up and skill UP for the future of work.
So following the sell-out success of the 2017 girledworld Summit at the University of Melbourne, which made news around the country and united 100’s of girls from 50 schools across Victoria and NSW with global STEM leaders, startup founders and amazing industry role models, we're delighted to invite you to join us for the girledworld WOW Summit 2018!
This year’s Summit will focus on the World of Work and immerse girls in real-world problem-solving, enterprise skill-building and ignite Melbourne’s RMIT University city campus across one big weekend of hands-on learning!
This will be a transformative, exciting opportunity for secondary school girls to shape their thinking, goal set for tertiary pathways, explore their passions and connect with outstanding global industry role models, business leaders and career mentors to explore emerging technologies, STEM, the Future of Work and use Design Thinking to tackle the biggest global challenges.
Aligned to the Australian curriculum, the girledworld WOW Summit will empower, equip and educate every attendee with the mindsets, skillsets and toolkits they’ll need to make informed choices about their future career pathways, and build their resumes with Micro-Credentials so they’re 21st Century work fit and ready to unleash their potential!

We look forward to you joining us, supporting us and being part of our village as we build the next generation of leaders, founders and STEM trail blazers.
Yours in gratitude, growth mindsets and goal-setting,
