Tech Girls Movement
MISSION: We exist to give girls access to technology and programs to build their skills and confidence. We present real-life female role models - women working in STEM, as mentors and superheroes featured in our Tech Girls Are Superheroes books. We inspire young women to solve important community problems with technology skills and business acumen through our annual online Search for the Next Tech Girl Superhero competition. We run hands-on workshops for entrepreneurship, robotics, electronics and more. Our Founder & CEO advocates for diversity and inclusion through public speaking engagements.
Is your group free to join? Yes
Collaboration Goals We have distributed *80 000 free books, placing one in every primary and secondary school in Australia (9966 schools). Our books present real-life women in STEM as superheroes who change the world. Used as a career resource the books use storytelling and strong powerful avatars to counteract the negative STEM stereotypes presented in the media. The inspiring stories showcase to all young girls that they can have a successful and rewarding career in STEM. (Including Tech Girls Are Superheroes 1&2 and Tech Girls Are Chic!).
Resources We present role models, and the opportunities afforded by technology careers, in a refreshing way, through storytelling. The campaign is unique in that it lasts more than one day or event, it is long-term, it is a movement.
