Australian Women in Sport Advisory Group

The Australian Women in Sport Advisory Group (AWiSAG) was established for two years (2019-2020) to guide a strategic and coordinated approach within and across sectors focused on gender equality for girls and women in sport in Australia. A vision, priorities with deliverables and aspirations were established to guide the Group.

The priorities and deliverables achieved by the Group stimulated communication and encouraged embracement across the sport, education and government sectors.

Purpose of the Group

Our vision is that there are no boundaries for women and girls in sport and physical activity. Industry alignment and collaboration was gained to lead the way to towards this vision and achieve the priorities of the Group.

Where to from here?

In 2021 the ‘baton’ was handed to the Women Leaders of Sport (WLoS) Group. Established in 2021, the founding members comprised the most senior women working in sport in Australia supported by Male Champions of Change. Founding members of this Group include those from the AWiSAG.

The WLOS focus is to amplify, advocate and support women working in sport across Australia.

Advisory Group Members

The Australian Women in Sport Advisory Group comprised members representing diverse organisations. Cross-sector insights were gained from some of Australia’s most successful sport and business leaders in the country.
