It’s time to get “on board” and make sure your organisation is best placed to meet the Victorian Government’s 40 per cent women on boards quota – deadline 1 July, 2019.
Is your organisation at Quota?
With just 4 months to go, it’s important to understand the steps you must undertake to ensure your organisation meets quota. Sport and Recreation Victoria will apply the quota to organisations that receive funding through the Supporting Victorian Sport and Recreation program (state sporting associations, regional sports assemblies and state sport and recreation bodies). VicHealth will also apply the quota to national and elite sporting organisations, with any new funding agreements made before July 1, including a requirement that organisations commit to achieving to 40% quota.
There are a range of resources available via Vicsport, and you can contact us here at Sport North East on 03 5721 0200 or email firstname.lastname@example.org for support and information.
The Wodonga and Towong Shire Women in Sport Leadership Program is underway!
Wodonga Towong Learn Support Lead Program 2018/2019 Mentoring Workshop at Trudewind Road Neighbourhood House
On Wednesday 25th July at the Learn Support Lead Welcome Night we had Wodonga Councillor Kat Bennett going through where we are at within the Wodonga community and how local government, and organisations like Sport North East are helping clubs to become more female friendly through targeted programs and facility upgrades.
After the official welcome, our first workshop was an introduction to mentoring – a key dynamic in our program. The session was led by Trish Curtis from Intalink Consulting, and covered a range of topics including goal planning and the Mentoring Agreement. The individual goals identified by the mentors and mentee form the basis of learning for the coming sessions.
