Winner of the Young Leader Award at last year’s Fairfax Media-Westpac Women of Influence Awards, Alexia Hilbertidou talks about founding GirlBoss, how winning the Award has helped grow it, and her wider vision for New Zealand as a society.
She says GirlBoss aims to inspire, empower and equip New Zealand girls to become the change makers of the future.
Encouraging girls to embrace male-dominated STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Maths) fields, develop their leadership and entrepreneurial skills, connect with other like-minded youth, and aid and enable their communities are some of the goals GirlBoss focuses on achieving.
