Women On Boards Hamilton: Women In Sports Governance – Is There a Crisis?
Sports governance, both here in New Zealand and on the world stage, is facing numerous challenges that include some very high-profile governance failings.
Each of the networking events kicks off with a short presentation from a female sports governance leader and is followed by a panel discussion that takes a critical look at what is causing these failings and the impact that the lack of gender equity is having on sports governance.
Topics will include a wide range of sports governance issues such as:
- voluntary versus mandated quotas on sports boards
- what role does unconscious bias play in sporting boards
- how do we create an environment where women can contribute to their full potential
Audience participation is a given! Come with your questions as panellists will not only share their insights, they will offer practical takeaways that you can immediately relate to.
