WORLD SHAPING, FUTURE FACING, WORK READY
The EXPO will see 100's of high school girls and undergraduate tertiary students exposed to a powerful network of inspiring industry leaders, STEM and innovation champions, media superstars and career role models across a highly interactive day of career education keynotes, engaging presentations and 21st Century skill-building teamwork sessions.
Critically, speakers will unpack STEM careers, courses and workplace opportunities, and the enterprise skills they use every day so girls can start to understand foundational future of work STEM toolkits and begin to build them now to ensure tertiary pathways, internship opportunities and career employability.
Through our work across innovation ecosystems, universities, best practice education research and ongoing engagement with 1000's of high school girls across Australia, we know that career decision making and school subject choices can be highly confusing in the senior years of high school. See our Future of Work 2019 series for more on this work.
As such, the girledworld WOW STEM EXPO program has been curated and designed specifically for Australian high school girls and females in early tertiary, tafe and higher education institutions to equip them to make informed decisions about their individual career pathways with STEM and the #futureofwork front of mind.
This is a great way for young women to meet and learn from inspiring female role models who “tell it like it is”, open the door to emerging STEM industries, uncover the job opportunities of tomorrow, and start planning for their future career pathways now.
