Women are still greatly underrepresented in the entrepreneurial community, citing lack of confidence and fear of failure been the major reasons why they don't pursue entrepreneurship. We believe that to build fundamental acceleration of female entrepreneurship in Australia, the conversation and learning needs to happen earlier in the education system.
The Fuelling Female Success program is designed to support educators to bring entrepreneurship into the classroom through storytelling and sparking conversations. We believe storytelling, role modelling and mentorship has lasting impact, and is a fundamental way in which we can trigger change and build momentum.
The program is centered on the concept of ‘paying it forward’ - encouraging more female entrepreneurs to share their journey to help inspire, connect with and prepare the next generation of female entrepreneurs.
Ultimately, the Fuelling Female Success program hopes to help create a dynamic, thriving and high performing female entrepreneurship community in Australia by ensuring it is a part of the current education system.
The program caters for students from years 5 to year 10. Research identifies that careers assistance in schools is more heavily concentrated in the later years of schooling (years 10 - 12), with fewer resources allocated to career development in the younger year levels.
Fuelling Female Success is a storytelling based You Tube Channel featuring engaging video interviews with a diverse set of successful female entrepreneurs. The video content is supported with a teacher manual to help facilitate classroom discussions and continue the learning and development.
Empowering students to believe they have the power to shape their own journey and overcome limiting thoughts and beliefs.
