Australia's Bonita Mersiades Calls For More Women In Sport Leadership Roles
Published October 9, 2012
NEW ZEALAND ENCOURAGES WOMEN: The AP reported that Sport New Zealand and the New Zealand Olympic Committee have created Development Scholarships to "help get more women onto the boards of sports organisations." The joint initiative is the first in a program to encourage "suitably qualified women to put themselves forward for sports governance roles." Sport NZ CEO Peter Miskimmin said, "Improving the governance of sports organisations has been a focus for Sport NZ in recent years with progress being made in many areas, so the time is right to tackle gender balance on sports boards because it will further improve governance capability" (AP, 10/8).
