YWAG is recruiting new members! Applications are open!


The Young Women’s Advisory Group (YWAG) to Equality Rights Alliance is recruiting for new members!

YWAG is a voluntary group of up to ten young women aged 16-30 from across Australia. YWAG values and amplifies young women’s voices, experiences, and expertise; we aim to bring those voices to the national policy space. We strive for a society in which all people have a voice into the decisions which affect them, regardless of their gender, sexuality, indigeneity, ability, or cultural or socioeconomic background. YWAG’s vision is that:

  • Young women’s voices, agency and expertise are recognised by decision makers, researchers and the public;
  • Young women lead, and are supported to work alongside others in providing solutions to issues which affect them.

YWAG’s values include

  • Feminist
  • Collective and collaborative
  • Diversity: acknowledging, valuing, learning from and working with young people with different perspectives, lived experience and knowledge
  • Solidarity
  • Self-care, sustainability, and support
  • Passionate
  • Energising and fun
  • Excellence, quality, and evidence-based
  • Agency
  • Intergenerational: Working with, learning from, and sharing knowledge with older women

If these sound like things you care about, and you’re aged under 30 years, we’d love to hear from you!
