Women in Sport Leadership Programme – IABA 2021

We have an exciting opportunity for female members of the IABA working in leadership roles within their clubs, county boards or at provincial level.

A Women in Sport Leadership Programme will be delivered through a series of online interactive sessions that will develop candidates to thrive within their specific role. Several NGB’s are participating in this programme, including providing a diverse mix of perspectives and knowledge to draw from.

This follows on from the success of our previous WIS Leadership Programme.

A combination of group and individual exercises will be included, ensuring that everyone is supported in reaching their own potential. Course content will be delivered by Leadership Experts and Consultants Lisa Clancy and Sarah O’Shea as well as guest speakers who will share their personal leadership experiences.
