Kate Kirwin

Founder and CEO

She Codes Australia

Next Appearing at:

Kate Kirwin founded She Codes Australia in 2015 with the aim of teaching women coding skills, helping them enter technical careers and building a like-minded community.

Born in regional WA, Kate strongly believes in empowering women from some of Australia’s most remote regions. So far, more than 7000 women from all over the country have learned to code through She Codes.

Kate’s work is closing the gender gap in tech, where only 30 per cent of employees are women. She has sourced more than $1 million from government and industry to support women in STEM.

Her achievements have been recognised with the Business News 40 Under 40 Award and The West Australian’s Rising Star Award. She was recently named WA’s 2024 Young Australian of the Year.
