SYDNEY LAUNCHES GLOBAL SCOREBOARD TO CHART WOMEN ON SPORTS BOARDS 

Greater Sydney Partnership Ltd partners with IWG to challenge global cities to lift the profile of women in sport

The International Working Group on Women and Sport Sydney 2010 today launched the Sydney Scoreboard - a measurement tool that will chart the number of women on sports boards globally.

The Sydney Scoreboard is an internet based measurement tool aimed at driving increased female representation on sporting boards and is the ongoing legacy of the International Working Group on Women and Sport (IWG) Sydney 2010 conference held in Sydney from May 20 to May 23.

IWG Sydney 2010 Chair Johanna Adriaanse said the Sydney Scoreboard concept has been developed in consultation with some of the nation‟s top sport professionals at a workshop held in Sydney last year and has the backing of newly established not-for-profit, the Greater Sydney Partnership Ltd.

"We were all united in our belief that a tool of this type could help to increase the number of women in decision-making and leadership positions in sport," she said.

"The representation of women in decision making positions is an issue in all spheres of life but seems to be even more challenging in the sporting arena with its strong tradition of male dominance.

"We are delighted to have the backing of the Greater Sydney Partnership for the Sydney Scoreboard. Their support will go a long way in helping to ensure the success of this exciting initiative. "

Greater Sydney Partnership Founding Chairman, Peter Holmes à Court said the Sydney Scoreboard issues a powerful challenge to other world cities.

"We are inspired by the pioneering work of Johanna Adriaanse and the International Working Group in advancing this vital area of female sports leadership. The Greater Sydney Partnership is about seeding and supporting initiatives that enhance Sydney‟s position as a global city. The Sydney Scorecard brings a new level of accountability to the progression of women in sport and challenges us as host city to maintain the highest global standards in this area. We look forward to getting behind the success of the Scoreboard within Australia and around the world," said Mr Holmes à Court.

The Sydney Scoreboard is a website and interactive tool, which is internationally accessible and provides a „real time‟ means of tracking the number of women on sports boards. The day-to-day management and updating of the Scoreboard will be handled by the IWG Secretariat .

The Sydney Scoreboard will be launched at the Closing Ceremony of the International Working Group on Women and Sport Sydney 2010 Conference held at Sydney Olympic Park today.

Ms Adriaanse described the Scoreboard as an exciting initiative that she hoped would help to increase the number of women represented on sports boards.

"Little progress has been made over the past decade in advancing gender diversity on sporting boards. The figures are there for all to see - women remain under-represented at board level." she said.

"I am optimistic that in time the Sydney Scoreboard in combination with the Federal Government‟s recently announced „women in sport register‟ which is aimed at connecting sport with potential female board and administration candidates, will help to drive increased numbers of women on Australia‟s sporting boards."

Ms Adriaanse, who lectures on Human Movement and Sport Management at Sydney‟s University of Technology, is currently working on a Doctural Study that looks specifically at the gender distribution on boards of national sports funded by the Australian Sports Commission.

To date her research has revealed that in 2010 only 21% of directors of the national sports boards were women and only 9 out of 54 NSOs had a woman as President.
