NSW Her Sport Her Way Grant:

The grant program provides opportunities to explore new ways of doing things, and to test new ideas. It is a key initiative in the Her Sport Her Way Year One Action Plan and will drive powerful change for women and girls.
Supporting Girls In Sport Grant:
Australian girls feel that unequal treatment is most profound in sport, according to the Dream Gap Report released by Plan International Australia. The survey of 1,742 Australian girls aged 10-17 years old asked girls about their view of the world, from their experiences in environments like school and the home to their perception of sport and the media. As a sporting community, it’s important to take notice of these results and do whatever we can to help make sport a more level playing field. Look at your facilities. Have a think about your change-rooms, toilets and the club in general – are they spaces where a girl would feel comfortable? If not, it’s probably time to make your club environment more inclusive.
Women and Leadership Australia:
The Australian Women’s Leadership Symposiums are a national series of events focused on the experiences of women leaders in the contemporary workforce. Held annually, in every state and territory, the Symposiums have been running for over ten years and have become the most highly attended women’s leadership events in the country.
