University students are some of our most passionate, informed and engaged supporters. There are many ways that you can share the work of the National Committee for UN Women at your university campus including:
- Host a fundraising event
- Organise an on-campus HeForShe event
- Promote the work of the National Committee for UN Women at your O-Week stall
For further information on how you can support the work of the National Committee for UN Women please contact Grace Hill on (02) 6173 3222 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Promoting the HeforShe campaign in universities is essential because it’s a way of approaching future leaders and making them reflect about gender equality at the beginning of their careers. What I did to help the HeforShe campaign was to approach student associations of various universities and promoted the campaign during their orientation weeks when students are signing up for clubs, associations and causes. I also looked for opportunities where the campaign would fit well. For example, I talked about the importance of HeforShe in a Women’s Panel held by Macquarie University.
