Balance the Board – 40% boards quota deadline July 1 2019

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 felicity.munro@thecentre.vic.edu.au for support and information.
