GirlBoss Edge Engineering and Technology Programme

Congratulations to Shreya Das, Imogen Keeling, Eliabel Legrand, Evie-Rose Grace and Peta Ericsson who have been selected to participate in the GirlBoss Edge Engineering and Technology Programme. During the 10-Day programme, the students will take part in problem solving challenges, have access to individual sessions with industry mentors and interact with high profile leaders.

The GirlBoss Edge programme is designed to empower confident, resilient, future-ready, young women to lead and change the world. Its mission is to close the gender gap in Science, Technology, Engineering, Maths, Entrepreneurship and Leadership.

The GirlBoss Edge programme is designed and delivered by 21-year-old GirlBoss NZ founder Alexia Hilbertidou.​ Alexia's passion for education has led to her being recognised as a Top 30 Global Teen Leader; Prime Minister's Pacific Youth Award Winner, and a Westpac Woman of Influence. She is also the youngest person in history to receive the Queens Young Leader medal for Services to the Commonwealth.
