International Women’s Day on March 8 brings a point of focus to talk about the progress that has been made and the work that it is still to be done.

Women in Sport Mentoring Program
Over many years WSA’s Mentoring Program has provided opportunities for hundreds of women to form mentoring partnerships with senior sports leaders. In 2023 we will be running the mentoring programs in Brisbane, Melbourne, Sydney and online.
We’re currently accepting applications to participate:
WSA Round Table Series
There are great organisations working to achieve equity in sport across the country. Through the Round Table Series, WSA brings the sector together to discuss the big issues and collaborate on how we can work together to shift the needle.
International Day of the Girl Event
Our flagship annual event will be held in Melbourne in 2023 around International Day of the Girl in October bringing everyone together to celebrate all that has been achieved and hear from those leading the charge to achieve equity in all aspects of sport. Make sure you don’t miss out by taking the WSA pledge so you are in the know when tickets go on sale.
The Sports Bra Project
WSA is the Australian partner of the USA founded Sports Bra Project that works to remove barriers to sport participation for women and girls by providing new sport bras to organisations and programs where opportunities and access to sport are limited.
