The topic of feminism and leadership is more relevant than ever.
2017 marked the birth of a new era for intersectional feminism, with
international campaigns such as The Women’s Marches and #MeToo movement bringing intersectional feminism into public awareness. Here in Aotearoa, the election of self-proclaimed feminist Jacinda Ardern also highlighted the effectiveness of a feminist approach to leadership, particularly in politics.
In response to this, Auckland Young Feminists will be collaborating with the Ellen Melville Centre to host a ‘Feminist Leadership Workshop Evening’ on the 12th of March, 4:45-6:45 pm to inspire socially-conscious leadership amongst youth, support high school feminist clubs in their establishment and/or pursuits, and create a network of future change makers.
We’re very excited to announce that Helen Clark, former Prime Minister of New Zealand and Administrator of the United Nations Development Programme, will be speaking at our event in a public Q&A session. This is a fantastic opportunity to hear from one of the World’s 25 Most Powerful Women (as titled by Forbes Magazine) speak about her experiences of intersectional feminism and how this has influenced her approach to global leadership.
We’ll also be running the following presentations before and after the Q&A session:
- ‘Feminism 101’, presented by Hannah Lees.
- ‘How to Set Up a High School Feminist Club’, presented by Freddie Simpson and Gabriella Brayne.
Spread the word! Tickets will be sold through Eventbrite at $10 with all profits being donated to Women’s Refuge. If you have any issues covering this cost but would still love to attend, please flick us a message or send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
