The Girls' Day - the biggest career orientation project for girls worldwide - comes to Australia! The aim of this campaign is to expand the range of career choices of women and to promote diversity in the workplace. For the first time in Australia, girls from years 7 and 8 have the opportunity to visit companies and universities and accompany women in STEM careers. They can actively participate in projects and gain insight into innovations that are related to Germany.
 
More Diversity and Equal Opportunities
In Australia only 24.5% of STEM graduates are women. A lot of female students choose their profession depending on gender, influenced by social role models and not based on their individual interests and skills. Girls’ Day offers female students the opportunity to look into professions they don´t give enough consideration.

Date and Registration
Girls' Day takes place on 16 November 2018. The offers and registration forms will be published on this page in September. To ensure that a Girls' Day program is organized in your area, please send an e-mail to sonja.pluess@goethe.de.
Girls in years 7 and 8 can participate. The event is also open to girls who have no knowledge of German.

Information for Companies and Universities
The Goethe-Institut invites companies and universities to open their doors on 16 November and to organise a Girls'Day for female Year 7 & 8 students. More information is available here: Information for Girls´Day Hosts
