The Future of Our Work
Australia’s future prosperity depends on the success of businesses and their employees to adapt to a connected, digitalised, and automated world. Research suggests 75% of the fastest growing occupations now require STEM skills. Innovation and creativity is needed to solve the world's complex and interconnected problems.
More than half of Australian workers will need to be able to use, configure or build digital systems in the next 2-3 years, yet many young people are entering the world of work without the knowledge and skills they need to thrive.
Today’s 12-year-old girls will be the entrepreneurs of 2025. They are the business customers of the future. In as little as three years they will be your next employees. Now is the time to provide them with the tools they need to take control of their working life, develop an entrepreneurial mindset, and a passion for innovative careers.
