    The girledworld BIG IDEAS Leadership Summit was the 2017 flagship event of female-founded edtech startup GIRLEDWORLD.

    Proudly supported by the Australian Federal Government and opened by Hon. Kelly Dwyer MP, Hon. Philip Dalidakis of the Victorian Government, LaunchVic CEO Kate Cornick and StartUpVic CEO Georgia Beattie, this Australia-first event will be held at the University of Melbourne's Wade Institute of Entrepreneurship.

    The girledworld Summit will be an exceptional opportunity for girls in Years 7 to 12 in Australian secondary schools to immerse in skill-building leadership workshops, hear incredible, transformative stories of startup success and career advice from some wildly inspiring and extraordinary female mentors, and experience first-hand the 21st century innovations and enterprise skillsets that will define the future workplaces they will inhabit.

    On top of this there'll be powerful public speaking programs (think TED for girls), collaborative and interactive Design Thinking, teamwork and prototype workshops, mentor-led expert experiential learning opportunities, deep dives into STEM, coding, virtual reality and the world of tech, keynotes from rockstar global female leaders and homegrown startup founders, plus a chance to learn world-class business practices and enterprise skillsets our audience can bring back to their school everyday and plug and play. 

    This is about better learning, better outcomes, and building girls up so they can better shape their futures.

    Because at girledworld we know all too well the challenges the next generation will face in a shifting world of work.

    Exponential technologies, automation, digital disruption and the erosion of traditional 'safe' jobs are moving quicker than the school system is capable of responding, and STEM continues to spearhead the future of work and life as we know it. The fact is, if you don't keep up, you'll be left behind. 

    So the girledworld Summit specifically addresses the urgent need to upskill, educate and equip secondary school aged girls with transferrable skillsets in creativity, leadership, problem-solving, digital literacy and STEM. This will ensure they are world-ready, idea-fuelled, confident and connected to an incredible community of mentors who can help them navigate their future career pathways.  

     

    Designed as a dynamic, informative, empowering and interactive educational event, the girledworld Big Ideas Leadership Summit 2017 will FEATURE:

    ENTERTAINMENT

    We are all about impact and making a real difference in the educational experiences, learning outcomes and career pathways of the girls we engage.

    Please do join us for an extraordinary weekend of career education, inspiration and empowerment.

    We look forward to learning and future-facing with you.
