Inclusion and accessibility

Pre-Register

The Youth Futures Summit values diversity and is committed to ensuring that the YFS2021 is an inclusive event.

We need to develop solutions that work for everyone, therefore we need people attending the Summit that are representative of the people we want to empower.

To support this, we are taking a number of actions to ensure the YFS2021 is an inclusive event, accessible for all and reflective of the diversity of culture, background, experience, and belief that make up all of Australia.  

If there is anything we can do better to make this event inclusive and accessible, please let us know via yfshelp@yda.org.au
