Webinar: Work With Young Women

November 25 @ 9:30 am - 12:30 pm

Explore work with young women and better understand issues such as equality, radicalised harassment, sexual violence

From social media and celebrity culture to pornography, politics to sports, girls and young woman are bombarded with conflicting with messages about what it means to grow up female in the UK today.

This webinar offers ideas to motivate and inspire young women by challenging gender stereotypes, raising self-esteem and building confidence to encourage them to fulfil their potential and reach achievable goals.

 

Learning Outcomes

  • Look at gender stereotypes and everyday sexism before exploring ways to challenge them through youth work
  • Consider the role of the media and the impact it has on young women’s expectations of work, relationships and self image
  • Look at ways to build emotional resilience and raise self esteem
  • Offer ideas to motivate, build confidence and develop assertiveness skills
