Welcome to the YWCA of Adelaide

2014 SHE Leads Conference
YWCA of Adelaide’s SHE Leads Conference is South Australia’s only young women’s leadership conference attracting more than 200 young women who see themselves as future leaders and are eager to develop their leadership. Now in its third year the SHE Leads Conference is the beneficiary of generous corporate sponsorship, testament to the growing business and community commitment to investing in women’s leadership. The Conference provides a safe space for young women to enrich their confidence, identify strengths and expand networks.

In 2014 the explicit aims of the SHE Leads Conference are to:

  • Inspire young women to develop their leadership potential, and
  • Foster dialogue and debate around women and leadership.

To this end, the theme this year is: “What is Women’s Leadership?”.

YWCA’s SHE Leads Conference is being held on Friday 22 August 2014, at venue sponsor the National Wine Centre in Adelaide.

YWCA's 2014 She Speaks Survey

YWCAs across Australia are celebrating International Women’s Day 2014 with the launch of the organisation’s first national She Speaks survey. She Speaks is an online leadership survey targeted to girls and young women between the ages of 15-30.

She Speaks now stands as one of the largest annual surveys on young women’s attitudes towards perceptions on and experiences of leadership. It 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 own leadership journey.

YWCAs She Speaks Survey is open until 30 May 2014 with results released late in 2014 and can be accessed online here www.issr.uq.edu.au/YWCASheSpeaks

School Programs 2014
YWCA of Adelaide is encouraging schools to book now for Youth Development Programs in 2014. Do your students have the following?

  • Mentors to encourage physical activity, balanced eating choices and the development of a positive self image.
  • The tools to reach their potential achieved through an underlying core objective of developing citizenship.
  • The tools and support to develop, promote and perpetuate equal, safe and respectful relationships.

If the answer is no, YWCA of Adelaide has programs that will do just that. We have a generous offer for the first three schools to book either a Go Girls!, Game On!, or Every Girl program - one free Respect Communicate Choose program. Please see this flyer for further details http://www.ywca.com.au/articles/downloads/1219.pdf and contact Jemma Taylor on 8203 9400 with any questions.

YWCA of Adelaide’s purpose is to build stronger communities through the leadership of women and girls. We do this by supporting them during every step of their leadership journey. The organisation has been working with and for young women in Adelaide since 1880 and is recognised as the leading voice for young women in SA. We deliver programs which focus on early intervention and primary prevention in areas such as young women's leadership, training and employment, mentoring and respectful relationships. To do so we partner with schools, government and industry.
