Empowering young women to lead their experiences

With Ash Peters, Isla Day and Megan Longman

Young women’s confidence in their abilities decreases during their teen years. Only 49% of 16-year-olds think they are good at physical activity compared to 75% of 12-year-olds. 

When girls feel more capable in their ability, they will feel a sense of achievement and grow more confident to participate. 

This webinar looks at how pressure by adults or unwanted competitive environments can affect girls’ confidence. Learn how if girls feel empowered to lead the activity or set the expectations themselves, they will gain more confidence. 

Join our panel from WORD and Journeys to hear how they have built a co-design delivery approach and empowered young women as leaders.
