Full Day Summit for young women (Year 10 - 13)
Only 2% of NZX50 CEO’s are women - We’re changing that!
You and your fellow GirlBosses are invited to the 2019 Future CEO Summit - a high octane, jam-packed interactive workshop designed to release your inner CEO. You and 49 other ChangemakeHers will come together to execute your ideas, create change and maximise your impact. Facilitated by GirlBoss Founder, Alexia Hilbertidou.
Currently, only 2% of NZX CEOs are women - we're changing that! Join the GirlBoss New Zealand team for a day of inspiration that promises to be energising, refreshingly honest and packed full of the learning you need to take your initiatives to the next level. Fast-paced modules will cover topics such as: Personal Branding, Pitching, Networking and Interview skills. You will connect with other like-minded high schoolers and leave feeling equipped to act on issues you are passionate about.
Alexia is just 19-years-old yet her vision to have gender equity in business and the C-suite has led her to a level of influence well beyond her years. Alexia’s passion for entrepreneurship led her to create GirlBoss New Zealand. In just 3 years, GirlBoss has gained 10,500 members across the country. Just returned from a space mission with NASA, Alexia’s own mission is to get young women to the table - the boardroom table that is, and she believes the decisions made while young are crucial in paving the way. Alexia’s passion for future-focused education is why she was named the most influential woman under the age of 25 at the 2016 Westpac Women of Influence Awards, a Top 30 Global Teen Leader, and a Top 5 Young Leader by the Ministry of Youth Development.
In 2018, Alexia was selected from over 20,000 nominations to receive a Queen's Young Leader Award from Her Majesty The Queen. She is the youngest Commonwealth citizen to hold this honour.
