Skye Riggs

FOUNDER & DIRECTOR

I have always been passionate about everyday people having a voice in community decision making but at the 2013 election I didn't feel like voting. When I began to look in to it, I realised that this is a feeling that resonates with hundreds of thousands of young Aussies, enough to be seriously undermining our democracy.

Luckily, my career experience to date has put me in a position to do something about this. I have been involved in leading community initiatives and helping grow businesses across the not-for-profit, government and entertainment sectors for most of my life. I currently provide strategic advice to organisations in the area of community engagement.

My vision for Y Vote is that we give Australian democracy a serious shake up and bridge the gap between citizens and our leaders.
