Go Girl, Go for IT is a program run solely by volunteers as part of the Victorian ICT for Women network. Go Girl, Go for IT has the mission to change the under-representation of women working in STEM by inspiring and educating young girls about the myriad of career opportunities.  

The Go Girl, Go for IT event is fully sponsored and run 100% by volunteers. There are two ways to volunteer, in stream and on the day.

In Stream Volunteer

In stream volunteers help plan and shape the event from the start, and we need talent! Each stream plays an important part in executing a successful event. Volunteers dedicate their time and share from their experience in the creation, execution, and delivery of each Go Girl, Go for IT event. We are looking for people who can give approximately 4 hours per week of their time which includes meetings and tasks.

Interested? Pick a stream below that best meets your existing skill or talent, or look into new avenues in which you’d like to grow.

Communications Stream

In this stream, we create content and visuals for online, web, press releases, interviews, below the line material and much more. We are also responsible for branding and merchandising. The accompanying Job Descriptions provide a guide for the type of skills we are seeking for the upcoming event in 2020, but don’t worry if you don’t tick all the boxes! If you have a passion to help young girls learn about careers in STEM, love to write and have an eye for brand, apply here!
