The Head of the Office for Women in Sport and Recreation will need to have unparalleled experience across all levels of the sector, from understanding participation from grassroots to elite, to day to day administration and funding of infrastructure.
The Office for Women in Sport and Recreation was announced in May to implement the nine recommendations from the Inquiry into Women and Girls in Sport and Active Recreation and deliver further Change Our Game initiatives to increase participation and enhance leadership opportunities in sport for females.
The office will work closely with Local Government Authorities, State Sporting Associations, Regional Sports Assemblies, as well as other sector organisations and peak bodies such as Vicsport and Outdoors Victoria to strengthen the collaborative effort needed to lead and drive sustainable change.
The new Office for Women in Sport and Recreation will also focus on identifying the policies and infrastructure required across Victoria to create female and family friendly environments.
