Founder & CEO
The Tech Girls Movement Foundation was founded by Dr. Jenine Beekhuyzen, a well-known advocate for innovation and diversity in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM). As CEO, she has a string of awards, tv appearances and research publications as the internationally acclaimed creator of the Tech Girls Are Superheroes series of books, with nearly half a million readers.
The Techgirls tribe of young STEM leaders is committed to solving real-world problems with technology across urban, regional and rural Australia and New Zealand. Over the past 7 years, we have engaged more than 10 000 schoolgirls in hands-on STEM entrepreneurship and chaperoned more than 40 girls over 4 years to pitch their winning apps and ideas in Silicon Valley, USA.
