Media kit

YWCA Canberra welcomes enquiries from the media. This kit provides background information that we believe will be useful in understanding the organisation. As well, we have included photos, logos, publications, and media releases, to make it as straightforward as possible for members of the media to find what they need.

YWCA Canberra’s Media Kit includes:

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 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.

As a Workplace Gender Equality Agency (WGEA) Pay Equity Ambassador, Ms Crimmins has undertaken a pledge to ensure gender balance on speaking panels. 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.
