Event description
Cloud Women & Ada Network at ANZ are excited to host the screening of the documentary Dream, Girl followed by a panel talk of key themes

About this Event

Dream, Girl is the film for women, by women showcasing the stories of inspiring and ambitious female entrepreneurs.

We know the names of Bill Gates, Steve Jobs, and Mark Zuckerberg. But what about the female entrepreneurs? What’s their story?

From brand new startups to million dollar industries, it’s time we stop telling girls they can be anything they want to be and show them what it means to be a leader.

Dream, Girl premiered in May 2016 at the White House as part of their United State of Women Summit, and continues to be screened at theatres across the world as a celebration of what women can achieve. You can find more details at
