girledworld+WOW+Summit+2019.png

A Day of Design Thinking, Entrepreneurship and Real World Problem Solving FOR GIRLS.

We’ve taken everything you loved from the sell-out 2017 girledworld Big Ideas Leadership Summit (University of Melbourne) and the girledworld WOW (World of Work) Summit 2018 at RMIT and gone to the next level for the opening day of the girledworld WOW Summit 2019 at the University of Sydney!

girledworld invites future female change makers (currently in Years 7 to 12) who want to gain skills in entrepreneurship, Design Thinking and real-world problem solving to join us for a hands-on day of business building!

Led by a dynamic, hand-picked squad of industry specialists, innovation coaches, entrepreneurs and University of Sydney experts, our young female changemakers will work together across a day of Design Thinking modules to unpack complex problems and work to solutions on three real-world pain points.

At the conclusion of the workshop, participants will have the opportunity to work with entrepreneurs and public speaking coaches to refine their pitches, then stand up and pitch their bold new ideas and business models to a panel of incredible judges. (Many of our previous Summit attendees have gone on to start their businesses afterwards).

This is a day of hands-on, intensive real-world learning not to be missed!

All attendees for the Friday program (Day 1) will receive a Micro-Credential in Design Thinking to add to their resume, and access to the girledworld World of Work Careers Platform.

NOTE: Spaces are limited for this highly immersive day, so please book now to avoid disappointment.
Group bookings are available for schools or community groups (10 pax)

SATURDAY february 16, 2019 9.30AM-4.30PM DAY OVERVIEW

girledworld summit 2019

Saturday (Day 2) will see hundreds of high school girls (currently in Year 7 to Year 12) exposed to a powerful network of inspiring female industry leaders, STEM champions and career role models across a massive day of World Shaping, Future Facing and Work Ready career education keynotes, interactive presentations and skill-building teamwork sessions.

This isn’t your average career conference.

This is an event especially designed to engage girls at their level, so they can better shape their future pathways. Through our work with universities, best practice education research and our engagement with thousands of secondary school girls across Australia we know that career decision making and school subject choices can be highly confusing and a roller coaster in the upper years of high school.

So the girledworld WOW Summit 2019 program has been curated and designed just for Australian secondary school girls, empowering, educating and equipping them to make informed decisions about their individual career pathways with the new World Of Work front of mind.

This is great way for secondary school girls to meet and learn from inspiring female role models who “tell it like it is”, open the door to emerging industries, uncover the job opportunities of tomorrow, and start girls goal setting and planning for their future career pathways now!

Speakers (live keynotes and virtual speakers) include Holly Ransom Emergent, Aubrey Blanche Atlassian, Anna Liebel Unisuper, Rita Arigo Microsoft, Dr Catherine Lopes PwC, Dr Catherine Ball She Flies and World of Drones, Madeleine Grummet girledworld, Rebecca Ruggles Airbnb, Liz Devlin Twitter and many more! Plus there’ll be plenty of time for students to learn from each other in breakout workshops and interactive speaker sessions!

All attendees will receive a Certificate of Critical Thinking to add to their resume and access to the girledworld World of Work Careers Platform.

NOTE: Spaces are limited for this highly immersive day, so please book now to avoid disappointment.
Group bookings are available for schools or community groups (10 pax).

Please note our girledworld WOW Summits are popular events and we have limited seating capacity, so please book your tickets early to avoid disappointment.
