Girl Geek Academy

Girl Geek Academy is dedicated to boosting the number of women leading successful careers in STEM fields. We do this by working with companies, schools, parents and governments to improve their capacity to support women at all stages of the talent pipeline – from school-age girls through to women in senior technology leadership roles.

We work with some of the best people in the industry, both men and women, to build programs that will increase the number of women working in STEM fields. Our key programs include #MissMakesCode, which presents technology and coding to girls from the age of five in a fun format; our all-women hackathon #SheHacks; and our all-women game jam #SheHacksGames, which sees us assemble teams of women with complementary skills and mentor them to build a product – be it a video game, a mobile app or online marketplace.
