Ada Lovelace?

Ada Lovelace was a trailblazer, born more than 200 years ago. She used her incredible imagination to write what would become the world’s first programming language. She was a poet, a mathematician and a woman.

The Academy for Enterprising Girls is a website jam-packed with great stories and inspiring videos to help young Australian girls like yourself build core skills to start your own business, change someone else's for the better or create a completely different way of doing something.

Enterprising Girls wants to help you you make your own life choices about how you work, where you work and importantly develop an open mindset. If we’re all going to have an average of 17 jobs in our career (yikes!), we probably won’t know where we could end up working until it happens! That's why your greatest strength to thrive now, and in the future, will be to develop an enterprising mindset.

Right now we’re putting on the final touches, but to peek behind the curtains and get a taste of the great content coming your way you can watch 13 year old Girl Founder Tea. Don’t forget to follow on social.

Rebel Girls

The Rebel Girls mission stemmed from a very simple idea—that girls with access to female role models will explore more, do more, be more! That core goal led to the creation of the bestselling children’s book series, Good Night Stories for Rebel Girls. Each volume introduces the stories of 100 amazing women, allowing readers to dream bigger, aim higher, and fight harder. Since initial publication, the series has been translated into nearly 50 languages and is available in over 70 countries worldwide.

Rebel Girls has since evolved into an award-winning cultural media engine, dedicated to highlighting and exploring the lives of trailblazing women who are pioneers, leaders, creators, champions and warriors. Their stories are brought to a global community of Rebel Girls through book publishing, a podcast, digital media, and more. Find Rebel Girls online ( and, on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter.
