SheDecides is looking for new Champions!
16th October 2019Only three years after it began, SheDecides now numbers 120,000 Friends and 42 global Champions. This is a monumental achievement, but it's only just the beginning. To mark the next exciting phase of the Movement’s growth, SheDecides is looking for bold and dynamic change makers to join the ranks of SheDecides Champions. Could you be one of them?
SheDecides is a global political movement fuelled by actions in communities, with young people at its heart. We are united by the belief in the right of every girl and every woman, everywhere, to make the decisions only she should make. We are committed to a world where SheDecides. Without question.
Working together, we advance the fundamental right of girls and women everywhere to enjoy their bodies, to make their own choices, to have access to comprehensive sexuality education and the full range of quality care that unite all parts of her sexual and reproductive life and health.
To mark the Movement’s next chapter, SheDecides has officially opened the nomination process for new additions to join the current cohort of Champions in creating a world where SheDecides.
SheDecides Champions are leaders from all parts of society who are committed to bringing the vision of SheDecides to life in their contexts.
The key role of the Champions is ambassadorial. They lead by example, demonstrating SheDecides values and pro-actively promoting the SheDecides manifesto. They grow the Movement and identify opportunities to promote the SheDecides vision, including by organising gatherings, events and other activities. They Stand Up, Speak Out; Change the Rules and Unlock Resources.
