Voices Shaping the Future – Schools Day is aligned with UN International Day of The Girl Child, designated in 2012 to highlight and address the many challenges girls face globally, and to promote girls’ empowerment and human rights. This year WOW (Women of the World) Australia will continue to partner with QPAC to host over 200 high school students in a full day of workshops, performances, and speed mentoring on the Wheel of Brisbane with over 100 mentors from a range of diverse fields, highlighting opportunities and inspiring diverse ambitions. A special feature of the program will be a panel conversation hosted by ABC’s Big Ideas Natasha Mitchell.

Presented by QPAC and WOW – Women of the World Australia

Conversation: WOW Big Ideas – Natasha Mitchell and ABC Radio National

At some point we all have big ideas on how we would like to change what is wrong with the world, or how we might create a community organisation or business to meet the needs of ourselves and our friends. But how many of us get a chance to put those ideas into practice – what does it take, what skills do we need, and what lessons will we learn along the way? Meet some of the most dynamic young leaders and changemakers in Australia today.
