2023 Female Leadership Scholarships

Published Mon 29 May 2023

In 2021, Sport NSW was awarded funding to increase capacity within the industry through increased gender diversity in leadership and on boards. The Increasing Women on Gender Inclusive Boards in NSW initiative is an 18-month pilot study program funded by the NSW Office of Sport as part of the Her Sport Her Way Year 3 Action Plan.

The program aims to support NSW State Sporting Organisations (SSO) and State Sporting Organisations for people with Disability (SSOD) to increase gender diversity on boards and in leadership roles.

Sport NSW is pleased to welcome expressions of interest (EOI) for our 2023 Female Leadership – Governance Foundations for Not-for-Profit Organisations Course. The scholarships provide access for 5 sponsored placements in the AICD Governance Foundations for Not-for-Profit Directors Course for aspiring female board directors and senior leaders working in sport.
