Changing Gippsland’s Game- Community Network

GippSport, with funding from the Office for Women in Sport and Recreation, has been working towards “Changing Gippsland’s Game” with women across Gippsland who work or volunteer in community sport.

The women’s leadership program is designed to build the skills and confidence of women to support them in their leadership journey.  This might be stepping up a committee for the first time, taking on an Executive role or pursuing senior coaching or officiating role.  57 women from the 6 Gippsland local government areas and from across all types of sport are involved in our program.

We have Joanne Love, an expert facilitator leading the sessions and we commenced in March 2020 and have progressed online during the COVID restrictions.  We found that this was a great way for women across Gippsland to engage with us and the training.  We were able to host our first face to face session in 2021 and will complete the program with a mixture of training options.

Many of our participants have joined the women’s good governance program and are continuing to lead their sporting organisations as we reboot post COVID 19.  It is inspiring to see these amazing women drive community sport despite the many challenges.
