We Speak: a gendered lens on leadership, housing and wellbeing

That’s a wrap! Thanks everyone for participating in the We Speak Survey, which has now closed. We had an amazing response, with over 1,500 people across the country completing the survey. Thanks to everyone for your interest and participation! We are currently finalising reporting with a particular focus on leadership, economic wellbeing and housing insecurity. We look forward to sharing the results soon.

We want to hear from YOU!

We are inviting women and non-binary people in all their diversity over the age of 18 to participate in YWCA’s first We Speak survey, a collaboration with BEST – Centre for Behavioural Economics, Society and Technology at Queensland University of Technology (QUT).   

We Speak explores women’s lived experiences of leadership, civic engagement, housing and economic security and health, to inform postgraduate research, policy and advocacy, and programs and services for women.  

We know that leadership isn’t just about CEO positions or being on a board or in politics. It’s also about values, behaviours, communities and the leadership you live.

Economic security isn’t just about having a job. It’s also about underemployment, income support and whether the money you do earn allows you to keep up with rising costs of living.

We know that housing security isn’t just about having a roof over your head. It’s also about whether your home is safe, secure, affordable and appropriate for your needs.

We need to hear from you, to help shape policy, advocacy and programs that value the experiences of women and non-binary people in all their diversity.

This short but important online survey will take approximately 20 minutes to complete. When you fill in the survey you will also have the chance to share in a $1000 total prize pool (10 x $100 vouchers) by opting in and providing contact details prior to 5 September 2020.

If you have any questions please contact susan.rudland@ywca.org.au for more information.
