What does innovation look like when it’s student-driven?

In this webinar, we’ll hear from Alexia Hilbertidou (Y13 student at Albany Senior High School, Auckland) and her mum Vicky Crawford as they talk about Alexia’s initiative GirlBossNZ. GirlBoss was founded with one key mission in mind - to inspire, empower and equip New Zealand girls to become the changemakers of the future.


  • Embrace male-dominated STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Maths) fields.

  • Develop their leadership and entrepreneurial skills.

  • Connect with other like-minded youth.

  • Aid and enable their communities.

Girlboss now has over 900 members and after her successful conferences (380 attendees and speakers such as Frances Valentine and Jacinda Adern) Alexia is now planning a leadership day for 30 young women from schools throughout NZ where they will be encouraged to start up their own GirlBoss pods in their schools. She is also planning to start coding classes (with Xero as a sponsor) and it looks as if her first workshop will be at Auckland Grammars Polycation event.
