World YWCA Council 2019

The World YWCA Council 2019 was held in Johannasburg, South Africa. At the World Council strategic and governance decisions of the YWCA movement were made.

The elections for the World YWCA Board held at the World Council were a reminder of how the movement believes in the power of young women at decision making positions. The new World Board was selected with representatives from all the regions of the world. A movement by and for young women, 60% young women were elected as board members.

The newly elected board is a face of leaders from all over the world with varied experience and expertise, and a reminder that the YWCA movement believes in walking the talk of young women leadership as a key to transforming power structures.
