In partnership with South Yorkshire Housing Association (SYHA), Led by Women was inspired to host this free event by the Ted Talk 30 is not the new 20 which highlights the reality that women in their twenties are making important choices in an increasingly confusing world.

The aim of the event is to provide a window into the stories of women who have led their own lives – and learned valuable lessons along the way. This is an opportunity to be inspired by women who have made brave life choices. And it’s the chance to have some precious space and time to think about your own. The story we want to tell is that you are and can be whatever feels right for you, and not to feel limited by what your own head (!), others or society have told you that you can be. The women speaking won’t be telling you the ‘right’ way to live, but simply sharing their experience of life, and asking – why not you?

The evening will be hosted at a lovely intimate city centre venue and there will be free snacks available and access to a bar where you can purchase soft and alcoholic drinks .The event is on the ground floor and wheelchair accessible.

A select number of inspiring women will speak for 15 to 20 minutes on topics such as ‘what advice would you give to your twenty year old self?’. There will be a ‘why not you’ pack with words of wisdom from Sheffield women to take away, and the opportunity to connect with some of the SYHA team informally afterwards to talk about your questions and inspiration from the event.

We welcome all women who are 20-29 to this event, whether you’ve been to uni or not, Mother or not, know what you want to do or not – this is for you regardless! And because of this, if travel or child care costs would prove to be a barrier then please do not hesitate to get in touch as we may be able to help. Also, if you would like to bring your children please just let us know and we can make sure that this could be accomodated.
