I love everything about Girledworld. As a father of 2 girls, brother to 2 sisters + 2 sister in-laws & raised by a single mum the women in my life are like the royalty to me.

I recently had an on going situation with my oldest daughter Madison who told me a boy at her school had been teasing her that girls were not as fast as boys. She stepped up and told him she disagreed with him (confronting the bully) and was willing to prove it. She challenged him to a race and beat him. More importantly she came home with a boat load of confidence that she stood up, took on the challenge and proved herself. My response to it all was “of course you can do anything you want, just apply yourself and maintain focus… & no one can stop you!”.

Girledworld get girls ready for the Future of Work by connecting them with real-world learning pathways, large-scale interactive education events, and are currently building a global World of Work STEM skills platform to give girls access to career mentor advice, micro-credentials and 21-century virtual work experience.

Launched through the University of Melbourne in late 2016, Cofounders Madeleine Grummet and Edwina Kolomanski recognised the current skills gap in the global workforce revealed a key insight: current approaches to addressing the skills, knowledge, diversity and gender deficits in the global STEM, entrepreneurship and leadership domains needed to be accelerated.

Girledworld is the solution, and the globally backed organisation now works with schools, universities, industry, Silicon Valley tech startups and female mentors to give 1000’s of girls the skillsets, mindsets and techsets they need to thrive in the Knowledge Age.
