WRNSW Annual Showcase 2014

Annual Showcase: “Gender Equity: Making it Happen”

Local Councils and Sports Organisations

On August 26th Womensport held its annual showcase on gender equity. It was a successful night which included a panel discussion featuring representatives from Local Councils and State Sporting Organisations addressing the successes and obstacles of  a new government-funded strategic partnership between Womensport and local government.  Pru Goward, patron of WRNSW gave an insightful speech on gender equity issues and showed her ongoing support of  WRNSW.  A handful of  successful female athletes were also present in the room, including Layne Beachley,  Jane Flemming, Liesl Jones and Lisa Sthalekar.

The MC was Debbie Spillane, ABC Grandstand who did an excellent job of mediating the panel. See Debbie’s article ‘Whose Sport is Anyway?’ below. Debbie was also recently inducted as the first female into the SCG Trust Media Hall of Fame.
