[Ep #09] Equality for Women in Sport

Topic: Equality for Women in Sport

Many barriers are facing women and girls in sport, including the right to:

  • Equal pay, workplace conditions and career progression;
  • Equal access to competition and training facilities, sports medicine and administration;
  • Equal media time, space, treatment and status;
  • Equal access to and facilitation of leadership and mentoring opportunities to improve confidence and skills.

My guest today is a self-confessed Strategic Connector, Agent for Change and Equalist.

She is the Co-Owner of Business in Heels – Jo Plummer, with her portfolio across Women; Water and Football, and therefore is well equipped to speak about our next topic Money (in respect to women) in Sport.

Jo specialises in developing and implementing strategy, engineering business improvement initiatives and managing change. She has a strong commercial background having held senior roles in buying and product development, business and merchandise planning and strategic design with well-known retail brands for over twenty years.

On today’s show, Jo will be sharing:

  • Player or not, most people love sport. Imagine if you could connect your business with this love. Today you’ll learn just how you can get started.
  • It’s no secret that women are vastly underrepresented when it comes to decision making roles and sharing in the financial spoils in business. Let's discuss how we can make an impact here.
  • Don’t love sport but love extending your business into growing markets? Interested in expanding your professional relationships both in Australia and overseas, let us help you think about extending your skills and expertise across industries.

“Let’s get women from the back of the air bus and give them a seat at a lucrative sporting table.” – Jo Plummer
