Realising gender equity for all, not just some, requires courage, persistence, creativity and determination. It requires open dialogue, and also a willingness for those in positions of power to acknowledge mistakes, then listen and then move forward and evolve in our efforts toward gender parity, with even greater conviction.

I support the IGC Panel Parity Pledge.
  • In 2021, World YWCA will offer the use of our Feminist Consultation Methodology, a replicable tool developed by young women using feminist principles of engagement, to like-minded organisations so they too can engage young women on global issues.

  • World YWCA, as a member of the Big 6 international youth organizations, and partnering with the WHO and the UN Foundation, in our role will push for and ensure young women’s formal and informal leadership in the Global Youth Mobilisation for Generation Disrupted project.
