To celebrate International Women's Day YWCA launched our annual She Speaks survey. She Speaks is an online leadership survey targeted to girls and young women between the ages of 15-30.
This year, in a first, every State and Territory YWCA will be participating in this now national survey. She Speaks now stands as one of the largest annual surveys on young women's attitudes towards, perceptions on and experiences of leadership.
Women still face lingering and persistent barriers in reaching positions of leadership in Australia. The She Speaks survey provides YWCA with a deep understanding of the challenges women face in their leadership pathways and also yields important information on the tools young women need to embark on their leadership journey. YWCA Australia is committted to creating the next generation of women leaders. Our services and programs, specifically She Leads, are creating a pipeline of young women ready to take on positions of leadership.
