Session Overview

Wednesday 28 August

Dr. Jenine Beekhuyzen is a futurist who questions existing structures which won’t serve tomorrow’s digital landscape.

Providing insight into the disruptive nature of technology, she will help us to prepare for an unknown future, engage the next generation of workers and leaders, and transform our approach to innovation. As a well-known advocate for technology innovation and diversity in Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths (STEM), Jenine draws on her 15+ years of internationally published academic research and university teaching, 8 years as CEO of her own technology consulting company, and her work with her not for profit to prepare our school children to be technology leaders of the future.

In her highly engaging presentations, Dr. Jenine Beekhuyzen, creator of the Tech Girls Are Superheroes campaign, Founder & CEO of the Tech Girls Movement and Gumption Trigger author discusses the necessity of overcoming the inertia that is debilitating our leaders and their visions of our technology futures.

She proposes that we invest in digital literacy and education to mobilise a tribe of next generation leaders who are engaged and committed to solving real world problems with technology. She provides practical suggestions for the future of leadership in the digital space.

Jenine’s unwavering commitment to advocacy has seen her awarded on the world stage as a Westpac/Fairfax 2016 100 Woman of Influence, the 2016 Griffith University Sciences Alumnus of the Year, 2016 Advance Queensland Digital Champion, 2014 Australian Information Industries Association (AIIA) Queensland ICT Woman of the Year, 2014 Microsoft Community Educator of the Year, 2012 Claudio Ciborra Award for Innovation in Research (Europe). She is the 2017 recipient of the prestigious Pearcey Award for Entrepreneur of the Year for Qld.

As an internationally acclaimed author of the Tech Girls Are Superheroes series of books, Jenine has reached more than a quarter of a million children with her innovative approach to storytelling and STEM. She also supports youth entrepreneurship through her national competition - the Search for the Next Tech Girl Superhero - reaching more than 2000 school girls in 2017.
