Susan Wu and Amanda Tawhai


Co-founders at one of the most innovative schools in Australia.

Lumineer Academy is a school for the future.

Located in Melbourne, students spend their days making, solving problems and working from the Luminaria design process, preparing themselves to thrive in an uncertain future.

Amanda is an accomplished teacher and school leader, and is an alumni of our very own EC Changemakers Program. Susan Wu is an American born entrepreneur, angel investor and start-up adviser. She was an early investor in Twitter and Canva and the head of online payments company Stripe in Australia and New Zealand from 2013 to 2016. She co-founded Project Include, an initiative to increase diversity and inclusion at tech companies and venture capital firms, and was named as one of the most influential women in technology in 2010 by Fast Company.

At EC19 they will share their powerfully innovative approaches to learning and give you plenty of practical ideas to take back to your school.
