The two-day Lead Yourself, Lead Others training program will be an opportunity for young women from multicultural backgrounds to come together and share their unique stories and experiences and to learn about leadership. The aim of the project is to empower young women to stand up and speak out and to be recognised more broadly as the true leaders that they are and can be within the community. 

In an increasingly multicultural country, CMY is committed to ensuring young people from diverse backgrounds have every opportunity to have their voices heard, develop skills and lead change in their communities. Racism and stereotyping is a serious and prevalent problem in the lives of young women from diverse backgrounds and we see this leadership opportunity as a way to empower young women to have the confidence and skills to stand up and counter this.

Lead Yourself, Lead Others will build the capacity of young women to lead themselves in their personal lives on an everyday basis as well as become influential in their own communities and in Australian society.

Lead Yourself, Lead Others will be an opportunity to connect with other like-minded young women to share and learn from each other to create a community of change makers. Young people have been at the core of every social movement in history and through our leadership event, we hope to identify and inspire the next generation of multicultural social change leaders: young women who are comfortable and courageous in leadership.

Applications close Monday 2 April 2018.
