Womxn and Girls

We want to hear from women and non-binary people over the age of 18 to participate in the we YWCA Speak Survey

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 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.  

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.

Open to all States in Australia.


Older Womens Network Online

As we’re unable to continue with classes, we’re taking some of our classes online and created a chat group to ensure that we remain connected, active and informed.

We know that these online sessions are never as good as a face to face interaction, but it is the next best thing for the moment while we wait for the days when our lives can return to ‘normal’ again.

You can be based anywhere and you don’t have to be a member to sign up for any of these activities which will be carried out through Zoom. However, if the events are oversubscribed, preference will be given to OWN members

Just write to us at info@ownnsw.org.au if you need instructions of how to set Zoom up on your smartphone or laptop. It’s easy and free to join. All the activities are also free to join.
