What's in it for you?
Did you know that 50% of all employees will need reskilling by 2025 as technology adoption increases? And 60% of girls tell us they find it hard to find female role models and this has an impact on important things such as self-confidence and career aspirations. We know how role models and mentors can transform girls lives and help them get clarity about careers and what they are passionate about so they don’t waste time or money on chasing the wrong pathway that doesn’t interest them. That’s why programs like the Big Sister Academy exist while also having gender equality at the centre.
Big Sister Academy is a game-changing program designed to equip the next generation of women leaders, changemakers and STEM champions for future possibilities and careers to change the world! Throughout the Academy, you’ll build in-demand skills such as dealing with change to future proof yourself.
We know the world is better, more sustainable and compassionate when we break down gender stereotypes, and women can pursue careers they love as equal partners in society. The future of work is also changing fast, where we regularly need to evolve our skills. Your future employers will look for any work experience you’ve achieved early on — especially extra-curricular activities like taking part in the Big Sister Academy.
Everyone wants to work with go-getters who have a growth mindset like you, and you will get a graduation certificate to share with future employers, so don’t miss this opportunity.
