Why this event?
Women deserve equal opportunity in sport, a better chance to participate and greater representation in audiences.
To get there, Australian sporting organisations need to focus on how their leadership and culture, audience growth and commercialisation strategy, participation and game development, and high-performance programs can be improved to facilitate the growth that women’s sport in Australia needs.
Engaging more women and girls in sport is not just about equality, it’s about the health of the sport industry as a whole. It’s simple: More women in sport means a bigger industry.
Building on the success of the inaugural 2018 summit, Women in Sport Summit 2019 will give you clear strategies on how to realise gender equality in your organisation, grow your female audience, boost female participation, cultivate elite pathways for women, and commercialise your women’s game.
Australia’s sport industry movers and shakers will 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.
