She Leads Participation Policy

The YWCA Canberra She Leads program is dedicated to providing safe spaces for attendees to discuss issues related to women in leadership. We invite you to help us make our events is welcoming and respectful to all delegates.

We do not tolerate harassment of event attendees, speakers, partners or organisers in any form.

Harassment includes offensive comments (in person or online) related to gender, gender identity and expression, age, sexual orientation, disability, physical appearance, body size, race, religion, sexual images in public spaces, deliberate intimidation, stalking, following, harassing photography or recording, sustained disruption of talks or other events, inappropriate physical contact, and unwelcome sexual attention.

Partners and speakers are also subject to the anti-harassment policy. In particular, partners and speakers should not use sexualised images, activities, or other material in their communication regarding She Leads events.

If any person engages in harassing behaviour, the event organisers may take any action they deem appropriate, including warning the offender or expulsion from the event with no refund.

If you are being harassed, notice that someone else is being harassed, or have any other concerns, please contact an event crew member immediately. You can also report harassment to or raise concerns with the She Leads team at

We thank our attendees for their help in keeping our events welcoming, respectful, and friendly for all.
