Launched in 2017, Young Women Lead is a leadership programme for young women aged 30 and under living in Scotland. Part of the focus of Young Women Lead is to increase young women’s political participation. Young Women Lead will create model Committee sessions and undertake research on a topic affecting young women in Scotland.
The programme will support and empower participants to feel confident and comfortable representing the Young Women’s Movement in giving oral or written evidence to a Scottish Parliament Committee, on issues affecting their lives. The idea being for young women to become more visible and greater participants in parliamentary business whilst gaining skills to enhance their employability, political engagement and voter engagement.
