Women in Sport (WIS) week
Women in Sport (WIS) week is taking place March 7th– 13th.
The aim of Women in Sport Week is to:
- Celebrate every women and girl who plays, coaches, officiates, volunteers, works in and leads out on Women in Sport.
- Promote and highlight the ongoing work of Sport Ireland, NGBs, LSPs and other stakeholders and clubs under the topic of Women in Sport.
- Highlight some of the programmes/initiatives funded by Sport Ireland Women in Sport Programme.
This year’s Women in Sport Week is focused on four areas – Active Participation, Coaching and Officiating, Visibility & Leadership and Governance.
Sport Ireland’s vision for women in sport is one where women have an equal opportunity to achieve their full potential, while enjoying a lifelong involvement in sport.
