Figuring out what you want to be...is super fun!
What do you want to be when you leave school? Some of us have a set plan and a clear path that we can follow. But for many of us, it’s a crazy thing to think about. Getting through to Year 12 is hectic enough, without trying to figure out what you actually want to be! But the good news is, you don’t need to know right now. All you need to do is concentrate on getting the skills that will set you up for later on.
Enterprising Girls is here to help you navigate the many resources, programs and opportunities that are open to you - so you can take control and find what you’re passionate about. Because being passionate about what you do is super rewarding, fun and way easier than doing something that doesn’t motivate you. And this website is the first step to figuring it all out.
You might not realise it, but you’re already developing many of the skills you will need for your future career. And some of these skills could turn you into an entrepreneur. What’s an entrepreneur I hear you say? Basically anyone who creates or runs their own business. Any kind of business!
The reason we want you to be an Enterprising Girl is because women are critically underrepresented when it comes to areas like science, technology, engineering and maths; skills that we call ‘STEM’. These skills are really important for anyone who wants to be an entrepreneur. They can help you be whatever you want to be, and help you get one of those crazy future jobs that you may not even know exists!
So I guess your next question is, how does it all work? Is this just more homework? Will it be boring? Hell no! This is the perfect way to try out your skills, see if you have any great ideas that we can help you develop, and learn to love those STEM subjects.
You’ll get access to industry experts who can help you develop the mindset and passion for entrepreneurial and STEM-based careers. The program comprises:
- A one-stop-shop digital platform with content on entrepreneurship, design thinking, coding and business.
- Self-paced online learning so you can do it from anywhere.
- 50 face-to-face workshop programs across Australia throughout 2020 - to inspire and guide you.
- An alliance of business, technology, education, community and government champions to cheer you on!
Who knows, you could be one of Australia’s future female leaders!
