SA Women in Sport

The SA Women in Sport Taskforce is creating an environment that values, recognises, includes and promotes the contribution of women at all levels and in all aspects of sport.

Our vision is:
Women and girls have equitable access in sport

Our aims are:

  • Improve gender equality
  • Change the face of sport leadership
  • Increase spectators for women’s sport
  • Attract women’s sporting events to South Australia
  • Broadly align sport strategy and diplomacy with cultural events

We are inviting everyone who supports the vision and aims of the SA Women in Sport Taskforce to make a  commitment to champion equitable access in sport.

We are also inviting people to share stories about recognising, including and/or promoting the contribution of women at all levels and in all aspects of sport.
