Inspiring the next generation of creative, entrepreneurial and Digital Women

Less than a quarter of scientists, technologists, engineers and mathematicians are women - and yet jobs that require these skills are the fastest growing and amongst the most highly paid.


Hear from a panel of experts, teachers, industry leaders and girls themselves, about what is stopping girls from embracing STE(A)M and how we can help to inspire the next generation of young women to become innovators and entrepreneurs.

We’ll explore how to break down stereotypes, how to speak to girls about STEM careers and what working in a STEM career is really like. You’ll also receive the latest research on girls in technology and take away a practical guide on how to inspire girls with hands on activities.

Whether you’re a teacher, a parent, a young girl considering your future, or just someone who cares about girls embracing STEM, this event will give you resources, tips, contacts and inspiration to change minds and change lives.

Light refreshments and canapes will be served during the event.

FREE entry for under 18s

‘All proceeds from the event will be contributed to the School Library Association of NSW’s efforts to empower the ‘Women Leaders in Technology’ group working out of Nepal Communitere, a space of creativity and innovation to sustainably rebuild, renew and develop Nepal by being a place that fosters creativity and connectivity, inspiring the Nepali and international development efforts.’
