The women’s sporting landscape has changed drastically over recent years. In the past 5 years, we’ve seen an unprecedented growth for elite-level sports with the rise of leagues like the AFLW, WBBL, and NRLW.
To build on this momentum, organisations need to examine the ways organisational culture, audience growth, commercialisation, participation and game development can be reshaped to
provide more opportunities for women’s engagement.
Building on the success of the past two years, Women in Sport Summit 2020 will give you clear strategies on how to create pathways to leadership for women within your organisation and remove barriers to participation. Australia’s sport industry movers and shakers will discuss tips for engaging audiences, sponsors and media with the women’s sports and show you how they are doing it and what challenges need to be overcome.
Don’t let your women’s development strategy fall behind at this crucial stage in the growth of our sporting industry.
