The Australian Sports Commission (ASC) has identified the promotion of women in leadership roles in sport as a key priority.
Through the provision of funding via the ASC and Office for Women, the Sport Leadership Grants and Scholarships for Women program has provided over 20,000 Australian women with educational and development opportunities since the programs initiation in 2002.
To provide a pathway for these qualified female leaders, the ASC has established the Women in Sport Leadership Register, which is designed to assist in the placement of women on boards within sport.
There are many qualified and experienced Australian women with the ability to positively contribute to the governance of organisations. National sporting organisations have also indicated that they would like assistance in sourcing talented females for consideration for leadership positions. Therefore, the Sport Leadership Register was developed in connecting the two.
The Sport Leadership Register is a free service for qualified women and national sporting organisations looking to connect. Women with qualifications, experience and interest in gaining leadership roles within national sporting organisations are encouraged to submit their details online for consideration to be included in the women in Sport Leadership Register.
Changes are currently being investigated to extend the scope of this register to provide additional opportunity for women to gain places at State level and in executive positions.
To record your interest for consideration into the register please submit your details below.
