How to get involved

“Individually we are one drop, together we are an ocean.”
Ryunosuke Satoro

The Y Factor is about supporting and empowering young people to take action for women’s equality.  Ideas, initiative, and the desire to do something, big or small, are all it takes to be part of that action. 

The Y Factor can give your ideas and voices a platform, provide a connection to other like-minded young women and men and support learning, the exchange of ideas and campaigns for change.
