Firms behind YWCA merger

Firms behind YWCA merger

Access to Justice Legal Services Takeovers & Mergers 

Pro bono can help transform organisations for a modern world. The YWCA first started operating in Australia 146 years ago, in Geelong, after germinating in London, quickly becoming a global movement of young women focused on women’s safety and rights. In Australia, the organisation flourished, with many grass roots groups establishing across the country during the late 1800s and into the 1900s. The organisation witnessed women achieving the vote, the transformation of women’s role in society and the workforce, two world wars, feminism, post feminism and the advent of our modern, digital world. By 2015, the organisation had consolidated from many small organisations to 11 larger groups, each serving geographic regions and operating in a federated model, with YWCA Australia as the national peak body. Despite this consolidation, the structure remained cumbersome and a barrier to leveraging programs, assets and advocacy across the country.
