Description

girledworld WOW Summit University of Sydney

A TRANSFORMATIONAL EVENT FOR TEENAGE GIRLS!

BUILD 21ST CENTURY EMPLOYABILITY SKILLS, PROBLEM SOLVE IN CHALLENGE TEAMS, MEET AMAZING GLOBAL CAREER MENTORS + GET SET TO THRIVE IN THE FUTURE OF WORK!

In a rapidly changing technological world, we need to equip the next generation of girls with the future skillsets, entrepreneurial mindsets and practical techsets they need to lead, succeed and thrive in their future careers.


The education system is doing what it can to keep up with this pace of change, but we need more real-world, industry-aligned learning so that young people can navigate ever more complex careers in the shifting world economy, and build the critical 21st enterprise skills they’ll need to become our country’s job creators, not just job seekers.

After the huge success of the 2017 and 2018 girledworld Summits at The University of Melbourne and RMIT University Melbourne, supported by the Australian Federal and Victorian State governments, the girledworld WOW 'World of Work' Summit 2019 will ignite The University of Sydney for two transformational days of future facing, goal setting and career planning for girls (Year 7 - Year 12) on Friday 15 February and Saturday 16 February 2019.

The University of Sydney girledworld WOW Summit 2019 will bring together top global speakers (keynotes and virtual) from some of the world's biggest companies (Twitter, Airbnb, Atlassian, Microsoft, SheFlies, PwC, UniSuper), Australian industry experts and outstanding career mentors to help girls explore the new world of work, what future cities will look like (Internet of Things) and how to plan career pathways in the emerging technology and STEM sectors. Critically, speakers will unpack the real skills they use every day so girls can start to understand foundational future of work toolkits, and begin to build them now to ensure future tertiary pathways, internship opportunities and career employability.

The girledworld Summit will connect Australian high school girls with the leaders of today to give them the skills, knowledge and confidence they’ll need to make informed choices about their future career pathways.

This event is aligned to the Australian Curriculum General Capabilities, Design and Technologies and Digital Technologies learning areas, and recognises the importance of the development of disciplinary knowledge, real world enterprise skills (critical thinking, problem solving and Design Thinking) and general cross-curriculum capabilities in young people (See below).

girledworld WOW Summit 2019 streams include World Shaping (Mindsets), Future Facing (Techsets) and Work Ready (Skillsets) and will be delivered at the University of Sydney campus across two jam-packed days of interactive learning, problem solving, leadership cultivation, industry mentorship and entrepreneurial skill-building.

All participants will receive a Certificate of Critical Thinking, and participants in the Friday Industry Challenge Day will receive a Micro-Credential in Design Thinking to add to their resumes. Participants will also receive first access to the World of Work Careers platform being developed by the founders of girledworld and scheduled for beta release March 2019.

Please note attending students do not need to be accompanied by teachers/adults. This event is supervised, and staffed by girledworld team and volunteers from the University of Sydney and our partner organisations. Parent and guardians are welcome to attend the Saturday program (Adult tickets available for purchase at $49.95).

Please scroll down for more detail on the full girledworld WOW Summit program.

NOTE: STUDENTS CAN CHOOSE TO JOIN US FOR BOTH DAYS, OR FOR JUST ONE DAY.

Friday February 15, 2019 9.30am-4.30pm

A Day of Design Thinking, Entrepreneurship and Real World Problem Solving.

We’ve taken everything you loved from the sell-out 2017 girledworld Big Ideas Leadership Summit (University of Melbourne) and the girledworld WOW (World of Work) Summit 2018 at RMIT and gone to the next level for the opening day of the girledworld WOW Summit 2019 at the University of Sydney!

girledworld invites future female change makers (currently in Years 7 to 12) who want to gain skills in entrepreneurship, Design Thinking and real-world problem solving to join us for a hands on day of business building!

Led by a dynamic, hand-picked squad of industry specialists, innovation coaches, entrepreneurs and University of Sydney experts, our young female changemakers will work together across a day of Design Thinking modules to unpack complex problems and work to solutions on three real-world pain points.

At the conclusion of the workshop, participants will have the opportunity to work with entrepreneurs and public speaking coaches to refine their pitches, then stand up and pitch their bold new ideas and business models to a panel of incredible judges. (Many of our previous Summit attendees have gone on to start their businesses afterwards).

This is a day of hands-on, intensive learning not to be missed!

Date: Friday February 15, 2019

Time: 9.30am-4.30pm

Age: Ages 13 - 18 (Year 7 - Year 12)

Location: Eastern Auditorium, University of Sydney

Saturday February 16, 2019 9.30am-4.30pm

World Shaping, Future Facing, Work Ready

Saturday (Day 2) will see hundreds of high school girls (currently in Year 7 to Year 12) exposed to a powerful network of inspiring female industry leaders, STEM champions and career role models across a massive day of World Shaping, Future Facing and Work Ready career education keynotes, interactive presentations and skill-building teamwork sessions.

This isn’t your average career conference.

This is an event especially designed to engage girls at their level, so they can better shape their future pathways. Through our work with universities, best practice education research and our engagement with thousands of secondary school girls across Australia we know that career decision making and school subject choices can be highly confusing and a roller coaster in the upper years of high school.

So the girledworld WOW Summit 2019 program has been curated and designed just for Australian secondary school girls, empowering, educating and equipping them to make informed decisions about their individual career pathways with the new World Of Work front of mind.

This is great way for secondary school girls to meet and learn from inspiring female role models who “tell it like it is”, open the door to emerging industries, uncover the job opportunities of tomorrow, and start girls goal setting and planning for their future career pathways now!

Date: Saturday 16 February, 2019

Time: 9.30am-4.30pm

Age: Ages 13 - 18 (Year 7 - Year 12)

NOTE: Spaces are limited for this highly immersive day, so please book now to avoid disappointment.

Australian Curriculum

In the Australian Curriculum, capability encompasses knowledge, skills, behaviours and dispositions. Students develop capability when they apply knowledge and skills confidently, effectively and appropriately in complex and changing circumstances, in their learning at school and in their lives outside school.

The Australian Curriculum is designed to help all young Australians to become successful learners, confident and creative individuals, and active and informed citizens. Presented as a developmental sequence of learning from Foundation - Year 10, the Australian Curriculum describes to teachers, parents, students and others in the wider community what is to be taught and the quality of learning expected of young people as they progress through school, and into their tertiary pathways and future careers beyond.

The three-dimensional design of the Foundation – Year 10 Australian Curriculum recognises the importance of disciplinary knowledge, skills and understanding alongside general capabilities and cross-curriculum priorities, and the girledworld WOW Summit at the University of Sydney is aligned to key learning areas across these three dimensions to ensure all attendees:

1. Develop transferrable Enterprise Skillsets and Capabilities to gain employability value

2. Work with traditional, contemporary and emerging technologies that shape the world in which we live, and will increasingly define the future World of Work

3. Develop understandings and capabilties in creating solutions through complex problem solving

4. Explore sustainable patterns of living for themselves and others

5. Engage with and respond to the designed world, and understand how to goal set and design for impact

6. Educate, explore and equip themselves with understandings of the STEM workforce, career pathways and critical skills needed to enage in this sector

In particular, the girledworld WOW Summit 2018 will align to the Australian Curriculum: Technologies (as adopted by each state) which draws together the distinct but related subjects of Design and Technologies and Digital Technologies.

In the Australian Curriculum, capability encompasses knowledge, skills, behaviours and dispositions. Students develop capability when they apply knowledge and skills confidently, effectively and appropriately in complex and changing circumstances, in their learning at school and in their lives outside school.
