Women's Leadership Program to Empower Female Football

Northern NSW Football launched its Women's Leadership Program today, aimed at empowering women involved in football to have a stronger, more positive influence on the sport. 

Today marks 100 days to go until the 2023 FIFA Women's World Cup starts, making it the perfect time to launch this exciting initiative.  

The Women's Leadership Program will provide online and face-to-face learning and networking opportunities for established and aspiring female leaders within football. 

Northern NSW Football Legacy Development Officer Helen Moseley said: "We want to facilitate the appointment and representation of more women to decision-making roles across all levels of the game. Our Women's Leadership Program is a fantastic opportunity for women to gain valuable skills, connect with other women in the industry and make a positive impact on the future of football." 

The Women's Leadership Program will provide financial contributions enabling access to online content and conference attendance, travel and accommodation, making it accessible to all participants. The program will provide a professional development opportunity for women in football and aims to increase the visibility of women in influential roles. 

"We are thrilled to launch our Women's Leadership Program at such an exciting time for women's football," Moseley said.

"The program will include online learning and networking as well as a two-day conference at the Opal Cove resort on 1-2 June. Travel and accommodation assistance will be provided too." 

This initiative is open to all women aged 18 and over involved in football, including advanced coaches and referees, board members, club volunteers, football media, high performance players and paid employees. We encourage all interested women to register their expressions of interest before applications close at 12pm on Friday 28 April.
