Media & resources

Welcome to our Media centre. YWCA Canberra welcomes enquiries from the media.

You can also view many YWCA Canberra photos from recent events on Flickr. These photos can be downloaded and used to accompany articles about YWCA Canberra.

Our Publications and resources page contains our key publications, including our Annual reports, Reconciliation Action Plans and survey reports.

Our CEO, Frances Crimmins, is available to speak on a variety of topics including gender equality, women’s leadership, housing and homelessness in Canberra and the childhood education and care sector.

When invited to speak, Ms Crimmins will expect that efforts have been made to ensure a gender balance on the panel and for women to participate in a meaningful way. She reserves the right to withdraw from any event, even at the last minute, should this not be the case when the speaker list is finalised.


YWCA Canberra also has experts available to be spokespeople on:

  • domestic and family violence
  • gendered discrimination
  • housing and homelessness in Canberra, especially with older women
  • youth engagement, especially for LGBTQIA+ youth.

For all media enquiries, email Jane Wilson, Director of Communications, Engagement and Events.
