Posted at 4:19pm Tuesday 03 Sep, 2019
Twenty-year-old Alexia Hilbertidou of Red Beach, founder of Girlboss NZ, will present an insight into the mind of a Generation Z entrepreneur and the inspiration behind the now 10,500 strong Girlboss army of young women who are determined to achieve gender equality in their lifetimes.
Girlboss, which promotes itself as “a professional network for a new era” began as a school project and is now the country's largest organisation for young women.
The talk is presented by fledging business association Business Whangaparaoa, which offers quarterly events for business owners on the peninsula and through to Hilltop.
Business Whangaparaoa spokesperson Sarah Carr says all businesses owners will be able to gain something from Alexia's talk – many will sometimes wonder about the key to their Gen Z employees mindset, what are they engaging with online, how will they be impacted by the future of work and how should we be preparing them for it?
Sarah says Business Whangaparaoa would also like to encourage local young people to come along.
“Age is not a barrier to success and Alexia is evidence of this,” she says.
