HISTORY OF NOWSA

The NOWSA conference was established in 1987 upon the ideals of creating a grassroots and autonomous network of students. These students come together from nationwide universities to discuss and work towards managing issues impacting female identifying students.

Every year, NOWSA hosts a conference at a different Australian university. It provides a safe and inclusive space for motivated, leadership-focused attendees to engage with important and timely political, social and cultural issues impacting themselves, peers and contemporary society. 

The conference environment allows students to gain and share knowledge, skills and resources facilitated through informative ad empowering panels, workshops and plenaries. Attendees of this year’s conference will also be given networking opportunities and the chance to work together in within groups to develop strategies and advocacy plans with the aim of creating a positive impact for students across the country.
