Join WWDA on International Women's Day for the launch of the new WWDA Leadership Statement to celebrate International Women's Day codesigned by and for women and nonbinary people with disability. 

WWDA's vision for transforming societies understanding, definitions and presentation of what 'leadership' means is encompassed by the statement and how it was developed. 

“Seeing things as they will be… a world which values the leadership of women and girls with disabilities in all our diversity”.


Women With Disabilities Australia (WWDA) is the award-winning, national Disabled People’s Organisation (DPO) and National Women’s Alliance (NWA) for women, girls, feminine identifying and non-binary people with disabilities in Australia.


In preparation for the WWDA Leadership Statement, WWDA has worked in a co-design framework and approach with the WWDA LEAD Project Steering Committee, made up of experienced and diverse women with disabilities from across the country. Through this process and space, WWDA has recognised and explored existing leadership struggles, progress, and achievements, including the feminist and transformative leadership that contributed to the history of the disability rights movement and the formation of WWDA. 

Hosted by Akii Ngo 

The Panel includes Saphia Grant, Karin Swift and Monique Crowden.
