Giving Young Women a Voice Competition 2013
Creative Director and Trainer
Calling all Graduates: aged 30 and under
The British Federation of Women Graduates are pleased to be supporting the National Council of Women competition, ‘Giving Young Women a Voice’.
This national competition is asking women under 30: If you could influence Government to take some action to improve the lives of women, what would it be?
Jenny Morley, BFWG President says to young women:
'We think the voice of young women is important as the future of our society rests with young people, and women are numerically more than half! Listening to your views, and acting on them,NOW should mean that the missing help and opportunities needed can be put in place as you emerge into your myriad future roles such as tomorrow's Nobel Prize Winners,authors, thinkers,teachers,barristers,economists,bankers,engineers,creators,carers,researchers,adventurers,Olympians, entrepreneurs,artists, musicians, home makers and opinion formers. Tell Government what you want to reach your goal. Above all have a goal!'
The winning entry will be put as a proposal to Government – and could result in initiatives which will have direct impact on improving the lives of girls and women, now and in the future.
