Over 180 organisations have supported their women leaders to attend a WSLA programme
We are based at a University but there are no lectures at WSLA – just facilitative, innovative sessions allowing participants to focus on self-sustained learning
“WSLA is a must for any women within or aspiring to a senior position in sport leadership. It is arguably the best training and education programme I have ever experienced and I would highly recommend the Academy. WSLA has enabled me to grow both professionally and personally”
Stacey (Golf Foundation, UK)
"I now regard myself as a phenomenal woman and am working with my team so they can also believe more in themselves as phenomenal women. I am planning to organise mini workshops borrowing from various sections of the WSLA programme. The seed planted will surely GROW."
Dorcas (Moving The Goalposts, Kenya)
"WSLA is a cultural melting pot, which provides a space for women in sport from across the world to develop their leadership skills and competencies, share their experiences and learn from each other. As such, they bring a depth of insight and experience, which makes for a stimulating environment.”
Tikwiza (Commonwealth Secretariat)
We are actively seeking financial and resource support for the sustainability of WSLA. If you would like to speak to us about this, we look forward to hearing from you about such opportunities.
