Empowering the leaders of tomorrow.
The Young Women Leaders in AI Program.
With initial funding by the Australian Government’s Women in STEM and Entrepreneurship (WISE) program, Young Women Leaders in AI brings together Australia’s brightest young women in a community of education, mentorship and opportunity in the field of AI. A 12-month program, participants will emerge as confident innovators in the technology industry. Applications are open to women aged 16 – 26.
Planned for Sept/Oct 2020 - dates to be confirmed!
In the interest of ensuring the well being of all our participants, The Young Women Leaders in AI Program Management Committee has made the decision to postpone the 2020 camp until later in the year. This is inline with a number of large events being cancelled or postponed both locally and Internationally (eg. AWS Sydney, Geneva Motor Show, GDC … )
We would like to ask you for your understanding and apologise for any inconveniences caused.
We are actively investigating options for alternative events and activities, and will communicate those details as soon as they are available. This information will also be available on our website
In the meantime, we will continue to engage with our community through our Slack, Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and LinkedIn channels.
We look forward to connecting with you all again soon.

We’re talking to Women in AI about their roles in the industry and the problems that they’re solving.
As a mentor during the 2018 YWLIAI camp, it was an incredible experience to share knowledge with these young ladies and day by day to watch their confidence grow.
It’s a great event for anyone to come and try something new. I’d never taken an AI workshop before, so coming here and meeting people that are also not from a tech background is really good and makes you more willing to try it.
