In 2020 and 2021, WDV will be undertaking several projects to engage more with young women with disabilities. Further announcements will be made throughout 2021, so please check back here to find out more.
Youth Engagement Survey
WDV wants to increase our engagement with girls/young women with disabilities.
We are conducting a survey to find out how we should share information, opportunities, events, programs and stories. We also want to learn how girls/young women with disabilities like to share these things with others.
We are inviting people to complete the survey if they are a 15 – 25 year old, who identifies as a girl/woman (cis or trans), trans man, non-binary, or gender diverse person, who
lives with disability,
is Deaf / deaf / hard of hearing,
lives with chronic illness and/or pain,
is neurodiverse, and/or,
lives with mental health challenges.
This survey will take approximately 10 minutes to complete, but may vary from person to person.
People may like to get support from someone they know to help complete the survey.
People are not required to provide names and contact details, but will have the option to do so.
If you would like assistance to complete this survey, or you would like more information, please contact Bridget Jolley (Women’s Empowerment Officer – Youth)
In early 2021, WDV will be opening applications for young women with disabilities to be part of our Youth Project Co-Design Group (YPCG).
The Co-Design Group will inform WDV of what young women with disabilities need in terms of leadership programs and opportunities. They will assist in revising current programs, and design new initiatives.
Members of the Group will meet approximately 12 times between March and July 2021. Meetings will mostly likely be held online, with any in person requirements negotiable.
