Change Our Game Women in Sports Broadcasting Program

The 2022-23 Change Our Game Women in Sports Broadcasting Program is designed to support women who are interested in sports media and broadcasting with the knowledge and skills to progress their career in this industry.

The program offers two streams: an Introductory Stream to support the development of early career sports broadcasters, and an Extension Stream to help those growing their presence in the industry take their career to the next level.
