Speaker – Facilitator
Who is Mariam?
Mariam is a Pakistani-Australian woman. She is a speaker, facilitator, entrepreneur and coach. Mariam co-founded MoneyGirl – a social enterprise delivering financial literacy to young women. Now, she speaks at events and organisations about the importance of intersectionality (Diversity and Inclusion) in organisational strategy, strength-based community building and stakeholder engagement. She has been recognised by the Financial Review as one of Australia’s 100 Women of Influence, and by the State as a 2020 NSW Young Woman of the Year Finalist.
In 2017, I became the youngest President of SUPRA (the Sydney University Postgraduate Representative Association), leading the organisation to deliver a 600% increase in its community engagement. By 2019, I co-founded MoneyGirl to empower and inspire women to become financially independent.
The Australian Financial Review recognised my work in the 100 Women of Influence 2019 list. I was recognised by the Foundation for Young Australians as a Young Social Pioneer 2019.
Public speaking, facilitation and stakeholder management are my God-given talents. I use these to teach young women financial literacy at MoneyGirl. I also love lending these talents to purpose-driven organisations and social enterprises working on sustainable change.
If I can put my voice behind your organisation as a speaker or workshop facilitator to help you make a bigger impact, get in touch!
What I Do

"Mariam Mohammed was an amazing choice for speakers for this event. She was completely unexpected and so different from our usual speakers for these things. As someone who thinks our feminism MUST be intersectional, it was SO refreshing to have someone stand up at one of our events and say this. I imagine that for many of our staff from a diverse background it also means a lot to them as well."
