Engage Gen Z

UNIQ YOU has been designed with GenZ girls in mind. It works becuase it:

  • Engages Gen Z earlier, during Grades 9-12 In a way that resonates with them through authentic, engaging 1:1 calls whereby the content is driven by them
  • Providing a breadth of real-time information by speaking with women working in these roles and industries right now
  • Seeks to understand the true barriers through Gen Z’s lens through regular feedback surveys

Educate the Educators

UNIQ YOU’s method of engaging and informing educators is:

  • Faster: Exponentially speeding up the education of each educator, attending 30+ calls each year across 10 industries and a variety of roles
  • More current: Real-world connection ensures information is relevant and up to date
  • More useful: Richer and more motivating insights than can be gleaned from traditional career information means.
  • A Scalable Solution

    With over 9000 secondary schools across Australia and key industries still seeing only 1-5% gender diversity growth YOY, the secondary-school career pathway pipeline needs a significantly scalable model to increase the pace of change.
  • Regional/Remote Impact

    Recent rapid technology adoption within both the education sector and wider industries has created the perfect opportunity to break down the geographic, socio-economic and cultural barriers that exist between girls and their access to a wide variety of inspiring, but under-represented role models.
  • Indigenous Engagement

    UNIQ YOU is committed to the representation and inclusion of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander girls and young women as well as culturally and linguistically diverse stakeholders and beneficiaries.
"I wish UNIQ YOU were around when I was in school and looking at future career pathways. I believe the benefit from talking to women in real-life roles sharing their knowledge and experience, would have really made a difference, and I can’t wait to be part of this inspiring program".
Temeka Johnson - Social Performance Specialist and UNIQ You Advisor

Generating powerful data

The data captured through the interactive design of UNIQ YOU’s service provides HR departments rich, current and relevant insights into key barriers to entry facing young women entering their industry or workforce.

It is anticipated over 10,000 pieces of qualitative and quantitative data will be gathered in the first year of operation.

With this data, companies, government and other stakeholders are able to:

  • Update HR Comms to speak directly to pain points holding young girls back
  • Re-design entry-level recruitment strategies
  • Make informed decisions about where to direct engagement efforts

Empowering HR teams to recruit the next generation of female talent

In order to achieve UNIQ You's mission to significantly increase the number of high school girls considering and pursuing pathways in 'non traditional' roles, we are excited to work closely with our foundational partners HR departments. Qualitative data captured through our service will play a key role in increasing engagement effectiveness of communication materials, creating a flow on effect that empowers and inspires.
