About goIT Girls work experience program

The goIT Girls program is a work experience program aimed at female students in Years 10 and 11. At TCS, we are empowering Australian students with the skills they need to be ready for the workplace of the future.

Participants will meet senior executives from TCS and from our client organisations. These executives will provide insight into the various STEM roles that exist across the business spectrum, with the hope of inspiring a new generation of innovators, problem solvers and technology professionals. The aim is to provide insight into the existence of gender occupational stereotypes in the technology industry in order to challenge and eventually overcome them.


goIT Girls has four areas of focus:

  • Provide insight into the technology industry, and the application of technology in business.
  • Challenge gender stereotypes by showcasing women in STEM as role models
  • Build technical skills through solving simulated business challenge
  • Enhance confidence and employability skills


Students can expect to undertake workshops covering Agile Methodology, Design Thinking, Interviewing and Presentation Skills, Innovative Technology, Diversity and Inclusion, as well as hearing from leading Women in Technology from TCS’ client network and Chatting to Mentors from TCS. Students will also undertake a business challenge set by a major TCS client to apply their new skills and understanding, with the program culminating in a pitch event.
