Applications open for Women Leaders in Sport program

Published:

Federal Member for Wide Bay Llew O'Brien is encouraging female coaches, officials and administrators to develop their leadership skills with the Australian Government's 2020 Women Leaders in Sport program.

The Women Leaders in Sport program has provided professional development to more than 24,000 women since its inception in 2002 and applications for the 2020 program close 23 September 2019.

"This important national program gives aspiring female leaders the skills to shape the future of sport in Australia, reach their leadership potential as coaches, officials or administrations and develop an even stronger sporting culture," Mr O'Brien said.

"I encourage women in Wide Bay to put their hands up and apply to participate in this program so they can lead the new generation of local sports stars."

The Women Leaders in Sport program is managed by Sport Australia in partnership with the Department of the Prime Minister and Cabinet's Office for Women.

The Women Leaders in Sport program comprises Leadership Workshops for individuals and organisations, as well as development grants of up to $3,000 for individuals, and up to $20,000 for  organisations.

Minister for Youth and Sport Richard Colbeck said the program was part of the Australian Government's commitment to supporting more girls and women in sport at all levels.

"This program complements a range of Federal Government initiatives to support more girls and women in sport, such as our $150 million investment to build and upgrade female-friendly facilities around the country," Minister Colbeck said.

"A program like Women Leaders in Sport builds capability among women and is a fantastic avenue to attract, retain and nurture female talent in sport."
