Startup Stories - Sarah Williams (What Were You Wearing)

4 Oct 2023 at 8:00am

Sarah Williams is the founder of What Were You Wearing (WWYW), a non for profit organisation providing education, awareness and advocacy on sexual violence.

As the driving force behind WWYW, she's pioneered Australia's first-ever exhibition and music festival focused on sexual violence awareness. Her advocacy has also led to the creation of a Survivor Advocates Advisory Group, giving student survivors a powerful voice for institutional change.

Don't miss the chance to be inspired by Sarah Williams at Startup Stories—a morning of empowerment and insights into her journey of transforming society through education and advocacy.
