Sydney, Australia is the proud host of the 2018 Global Summit of Women, which will bring over 1,000 women leaders in business and government for three days of information-sharing, skills-building and global networking. An engaging, solutions-oriented gathering of high calibre participants from 60+ countries! We would love the YWCA to be represented there at the Youth Summit, ESPECIALLY if you’re a young woman (18-30) and a member.

“WELL! What’s the Youth Forum?” we hear you ask. It’s a session in which the Summit features successful young entrepreneurs to discuss their journey to creating and growing their enterprises. For example, at the 2017 Tokyo Summit, Australian Marita Cheng, who invented robotic arms for the disabled, participated as one of the presenters.

The Summit gives 20 young women (18-30 years old)  the opportunity to attend the Summit for free.

Candidates are asked to submit a resume and personal essay detailing why they wish to attend and what they wish to achieve through their attendance. And the YWCA will provide accommodation! (Note: depending on your location, you may have to provide your own transport).
