Women are the heart and soul of this world. “What's Your Why" asks women why they do what they do, why they keep persevering despite adversity and why their purpose is meaningful to them. We talk to women from all over the Waikato about their experiences as they share valuable pockets of knowledge they have picked up along the way. This podcast is run by the YWCA Hamilton – an organisation dedicated to empowering, inspiring and elevating women to achieve success in whatever ways that look like to her. We are a community-based organisation in Kirikiriroa and we are here to support women through whatever part of our journey they are on. We hope after listening you remember that we are all beautiful, strong, resilient, and empathetic. Our strength lies in who we are, what we stand for and our ability to relate to one another. Collectively, as self-assured women, we can change the world together.
