SA Women in Sport Taskforce

The SA Women in Sport Taskforce works to improve gender equality in all aspects of South Australian sport.

The South Australia Women in Sport Taskforce Action Plan 2016 -18 intends to quickly turn the issues facing women in sport around by:

  • Stopping high school and primary school students from dropping out of sports;
  • Creating opportunities for businesses to better collaborate with sportswomen;
  • Providing advice for female athletes on contract negotiations;
  • Attracting more women’s sporting events to South Australia;
  • Removing cultural barriers for women in sport;
  • Increasing the number of women on sports boards and as CEOs of sporting organisations.
