The South West Women in Sport Leadership program will provide leadership training to 25 women who are currently involved in sporting clubs, local government or the broader sport sector.
The Change Our Game Ambassador program is focused on connecting influential women with the broader sport and active recreation industry, in order to inspire and advocate gender equality. ‘You can’t be what you can’t see’, and enlisting high profile ambassadors is one way of maximising the reach of the program’s messaging through official appearances and social media activity.
Our Ambassadors provide expertise to the community sport and recreation sector, providing inspiration and advice on policy, increasing female leadership and participation, and breaking down barriers to gender equality, both on and off the playing arena.
