Hayley Young


On June 1, the WBCC added new energy to its advocacy work by hiring a Capitol Advocate to its staff. Hayley Young of Madison was selected to help the WBCC raise its profile and build up our advocacy networks.

Hayley is a recent graduate of UW-Madison with a degree in Political Science and International Studies with a Certificate in Gender and Women’s studies. While a student, Hayley took courses focused on women’s health, and the political activism surrounding these issues. In all her work, Hayley is drawn to activism and affecting the political process, especially where it impacts women’s health.

Hayley brings her policy and advocacy background to the WBCC to help create stronger relationships with change makers in Madison. She also works as a Legislative Aide and a Dane County Board Supervisor, where she serves on the Health and Human Needs Committee.

When she isn’t working, Hayley enjoys exploring downtown Madison with friends, going for walks, and curling up with a good book and a strong cup of coffee.

Hayley’s profile is part of an ongoing series. Visit the Meet Our Members page to read more about featured WBCC members.
