Girls+ Engineering Tomorrow

An outreach initiative designed to increase the visibility of engineering amongst girls and non-binary students, supporting their pathway towards tertiary engineering studies.

The Girls+ Engineering Tomorrow (GET) initiative aims to inspire and connect like-minded students interested in STEM. Students learn about engineering by connecting with role models, participating in engaging workshops and receiving information about engineering study and career pathways. The initiative includes programs and events for students at different stages of their educational journey – from Year 7 to first-year university.

This initiative is girl-focused and intends an inclusive definition of girls. We are welcoming and respectful of girls, including those who are nonbinary, gender non-conforming, and anyone who identifies as a girl in a way that is significant to them.

“The GET program has given us plenty of amazing opportunities that will set us up for the future. It was an awesome opportunity to meet successful engineers and create connections. I met my amazing mentor who I’ve kept in contact with since and I have asked her many questions which have given me so much clarity and is helping me realise where my interests truly are.”

Industry Support

We know we can’t do this alone. Inspiring and supporting girls+ to study engineering requires collaboration between schools, industry and higher education. There are many ways for industry to support the initiative, including:

We are looking to work with partners and are open to conversations about how we can meet each other’s goals. Please get in contact if you would like to GET involved.
