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 [email protected] for more information.

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

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

Susan Rudland, YWCA’s Research and Evaluation Specialist says “There are a lot of assumptions made about women’s experiences and perspectives that shape policy, advocacy and national decision-making.  As a not-for-profit advocacy, community and housing organisation, we seek positive outcomes and opportunities for women in all their diversity.”

So we want to test those assumptions and build the evidence for policy and decision-makers, which is why we are looking for women and non-binary people over the age of 18 to participate in this survey before the end of August.”

Your voices will drive advocacy and policy reform, community services, leadership and housing, and national understandings of women’s health and wellbeing.

This online survey will take approximately 20 minutes to complete.  When you fill in the survey you have the chance to share a $1000 total prize pool by opting in and providing contact details. Survey link: https://busqut.au1.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_7THrAB8nZiHMQGV
