Happy International Women’s Day (IWD) 2011!
To celebrate IWD, two groups on the forefront of women’s sport launched important and potentially game changing initiatives.
1. The International Working Group on Women and Sport launched the Sydney Scoreboard. The site serves as a means to collect and display data on the gender balance of the board members, chair persons and CEOs of national and international sporting organizations.
2. The Canadian Association for the Advancement of Women and Sport, launched the Women and Leadership Network, designed to connect women leaders in sport and physical activity across Canada – administrators, volunteers, coaches, officials…all women are invited to join. The success of the Network relies on the engagement of members to create a space where women can build their skills, connect, share ideas, discuss issues, find solutions and take action.
