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.
Expressions of Interest for 2019/2020 Alpine Indigo Program are Now Open.
Learn Support Lead: Activating Female Leaders In Sport is a 12 month female mentoring and leadership program designed to activate the uptapped skills and experience of local women on and off the field.
Women continue to be under-represented in visible leadership roles across the sport and recreation sector. Grassroots sport and recreation clubs play an important role to drive positive change.
The program includes emerging leaders, and established leaders who will act as mentors. The program will guide participants through a series of workshops to build confidence, leadership capability, and develop networks within the North East region that will ultimately allow them to realise their leadership potential as players, coaches, administrators or committee members as well as other roles within their club.
We are seeking participants from a variety of sporting codes and experiences. Expressions of Interest are now open.
Please note workshops will be conducted on Wednesday evenings on a monthly basis commencing in August 2019 in the Alpine and Indigo Shires.
