Sportswomen for Change Leadership Forum 2018
Calling all Sportswomen for Change!
From March 12-18, 2018, Football United is thrilled to be hosting the Sportswomen for Change Leadership Forum, a week long residential program that will invite up to six women practising sport-for-development (S4D) in Arab nations to connect and learn with six Australian women in the field.
This forum, supported by the Commonwealth through the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade’s Council for Australian-Arab Relations, provides an exchange to challenge global misconceptions and promote people-to-people links across cultural boundaries. The forum will build the capacity of female practitioners in sport for development to implement change in their communities through the games they love and ensure their grassroots program design is safe, fun and inclusive for all regardless of ability, ethnicity, socio-cultural background.
For this forum we are looking for 6 highly inspirational female practitioners in sport for development (administrator, or coach) from Arab nations and Australia. Ideally you are someone who is responsible for delivering and/or designing sports activities within the field of sport for social change and working or volunteering with a credible sport for social change organisation.
Main costs* for the forum will be covered.
The Sportswomen for Change Leadership Forum is supported by the Commonwealth through the Council for Australian-Arab Relations, which is part of the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade.
