You don’t need to be the Ada Lovelace of 2019 but if you are curious about your world and love solving problems, The Academy for Enterprising Girls wants you.

The Academy for Enterprising Girls offers Australian girls aged between 10 and 18 years, the opportunity to develop their skills across a variety of design, STEM and business disciplines.

With the digital economy and new technologies set to transform the future economic environment, the Academy is preparing Australian girls for the workforce of the future.

The Academy is an initiative delivered through the Future Female Entrepreneurs Program and is supported by funding from the Australian Government. The program is a fun and exciting way for Australian girls to learn and increase their skills, and be inspired by industry experts and successful entrepreneurs.

According to the 2016 census, only 17 per cent of 2016 STEM graduates were women. The Academy is hoping to increase this figure by delivering free access to introductory skills on business ideas, innovation, design thinking and digital skills to all girls, regardless of where they live.

The program is being delivered through a series of face-to-face workshops as well as entrepreneurship e-learning and pathways to advanced entrepreneurship and STEM education.

Registrations for the program are now open. Visit The Academy for Enterprising Girls website for more information.
