Casey Harden

Realising gender equity requires courage, persistence, creativity and determination. I believe that girls, young women and women- as individuals or working together across generations or identities- are powerful beyond measure. By way of formal and informal leadership, girls, young women and women have, do, and will continue to transform power structures.

I support the IGC Panel Parity Pledge.
  • Representing World YWCA as a member of the Big 6 international youth organizations group, I will push for young women’s formal and informal engagement and leadership with those peer organizations.

  • By 2021, I will ensure that World YWCA offers the use of our Feminist Consultation Methodology, a replicable tool developed by young women using feminist principles of engagement, to like-minded organisations so they too can engage young women on global issues.
