Young Women's Recruitment, Retention and Leadership study

The WomenSpeak Network is currently working on a research project called
'Young Women's Recruitment, Retention and Leadership: lessons learned
from the women's movement.'

What is the overall aim of the policy research?

* To establish broadly young women's involvement and perceptions
of their involvement in women's organisations.
* To find out whether organisations are actively involved in the
recruitment, retention and promotion of young women's into leadership
positions.
* In line with the goals of the WomenSpeak Network reflect on how
effective young women's participation, networking and diversity is
within the organisations.

We have developed two surveys:
1) to ask young women about their involvement and perceptions of that
involvement in community organisations especially women's organisations.

2) to ask women's and community organisations about their current
experiences with young women's recruitment, retention and leadership.

The results of the research will be published later in the year and made
freely available. We also hope that the outcome of the research will
offer practical and useful suggestions and guides to what is being done
and could be done in many of our organisations.

The surveys are available on-line at:
- young women's survey http://www.ywca.org.au/survey_2.htm
- women's & community organisations survey
http://www.ywca.org.au/survey_1.htm

or can be made available as word files or in hard copy.

The more responses we get, the more useful the survey will be, so fill
one in yourself and forward this email on through your networks and
members.

Thank you for taking the time to complete one or both of the surveys and
passing the message on.

The WomenSpeak Network is one of four national networks of women's
organizations funded by the Australian Government Office for Women.
