Publishers of material about women in leadership roles in sport

There are quite a few websites publishing material of women in leadership roles in sport. However, none of the websites are focusing on women in leadership in sport alone.

One of the websites out there called AdvancingWomen.com is focusing on women in leadership roles. This website is trying to level the playing field and help women into leadership positions. Attached to this website is an online journal, Advancing Women in Leadership Journal. Published on the online journal are journal articles about women in leadership and among these published articles are articles on women in leadership roles in sport.

The International Working Group on Women and Sport (IWG) is also publishing material of women in leadership roles in sport.

The vision of the IWG is to realize a sustainable sporting culture that enables and values the full involvement of women in every aspect of sport. The mission is to be a catalyst for the advancement and empowerment of women and sport globally.

So this website is not only focused on women in leadership but women in all aspects of sport.

Australia and Canada have two pretty similar associations who are publishing material about women in leadership roles in sport. These two associations are Australian Womensport & Recreation Association and The Canadian Association for the Advancement of Women and Sport and Physical Activity (CAAWS).

There are also government websites which are publishing articles on women in leadership roles in sport. The Australian Sports Commission and the UK Sport websites are good examples.

Then there are media outlets who are publishing an occasional article on women in leadership roles in sport. There are also quite a few journal articles spread around the web dealing with this topic.
