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.
62% of women in Victoria say they want to become more physically active. So let’s help them. #ThisGrilcanvic
This Girl Can – Victoria is about helping women get active – no matter how well they do it, how they look or even how red their face gets. Research has told us that women can have a fear of judgement that stops them from feeling comfortable with physical activity. This Girl Can – Victoria campaign addresses this by showing a range of everyday women being physically activity regardless of age, level of ability, background, body shape and size.
On Thursday, 1st March the team from Sport North East along with various council and community leaders met with Dr Bridie O’Donnell, Head of the Office for Women in Sport and Recreation. This new Office has been created to implement the nine recommendations from the Inquiry into Women and Girls in Sport and Active Recreation and deliver further Change Our Game initiatives to boost participation and create more leadership opportunities in sport for women.
The Round table Discussion, held in Beechworth was an invitation to discuss and contribute our expertise and experiences of steps to increase female participation and leadership in our regional communities, how we are progressing with developing safe and inclusive sporting and recreation cultures, and barriers to gender equality in sport and recreation in general.
As Head of the Office for Women in Sport and Recreation, Dr O’Donnell plans to focus on changing the face of sport and recreation so that woman and girls can see a future in sport that welcomes their skills, passion and participation.
