Women from Culturally Diverse Backgrounds in Leadership

by BowlsSA5 on July 21, 2020


There is a large underrepresentation of women from culturally and linguistically diverse (CaLD) backgrounds who are leaders throughout many sectors, including sport. To increase organisational performance, social responsibility, membership and gender equality in the sport sector, there is a need to increase the number of women from CALD backgrounds as leaders.

Sports leadership roles exist in community clubs through to international organisations. Many roles exist, examples include a: team manager for children; club committee / board member; coach; umpire; senior marketing manager; CEO; and President.

To help create diverse and inclusive workplaces in sport, we need to understand what prevents or encourages you to be a leader. Your input will be combined with hundreds of other women’s and findings will be transferred into strategies to assist sport organisations. The following survey focuses on women who:

  • Want to become sport leaders
  • Are current sport leaders
  • Are not interested to become leaders in sport
