We've launched a new survey to capture the views of women aged 18-30s as we develop new resources for this age group.
As part of its Esther Collective Communities, GB is looking for women to share their thoughts and shape resources that are fun and relevant to their peers.
The survey is available here and is for all women aged 18-30s – please take a few moments to fill it out, or pass it on to a woman you know in this age group.
The Esther Collective Communities will be local groups of 18-30s women that gather together to have fun, chat about life’s big and small topics, and do life together. This survey enables women in this age group to have their say on how these Communities work, and what resources they'd find helpful.
Charlotte Hendy, The Esther Collective Project Leader, says ‘GB has been working with girls and young women for almost 125 years. As we develop new and innovative ways to support them, we're particularly keen to provide more for 18-30s. Most of all, we want to hear from the women themselves, and enable them to shape The Esther Collective Communities for themselves.’
We'll also be holding a small focus group at our autumn conference on Saturday 4 November 2017 in Birmingham. If you'd like to share your thoughts and be a part of this, please email email@example.com to register your interest.
On Wednesday, Girlguiding released its annual Girls’ Attitudes survey. The biggest survey of its kind in the UK, it asked the opinions of just under 2,000 girls and young women aged 7 to 21 (not just members of Girlguiding). As it gives us an insight about how girls feel about a range of issues, emerging pressures and what they need to support their happiness, wellbeing and opportunities in life, it’s important that we listen to their voices.
