Leadership Centre

Women continue to be under-represented in visible leadership roles throughout the sport and recreation sector. This leadership space is designed to showcase various initiatives, programs, resources and provide support to help bridge this gap.

Explore the search and filter function below to find information about gender equality strategies, successful and innovative programs driving inclusion in Victoria or simply gain inspiration from some of our role models leading the way in the sector.

This is a space to collaborate and share insights as we know the only way to level the playing field is through working together. If you have any additional resources or information you think would be a great addition to this space please contact us.
