Initially announced at a SIGA Session in Paris on the eve of International Women’s Day in 2018, SIGA set in motion the launch of a worldwide, action-orientated mentorship programme to support and encourage future female leaders in sport to reach their potential. For the official press release, click here. To date SIGA has delivered mentorship to over 200 aspiring female leaders in the sports industry and our target for the 5th cycle is to double the programme from 50 global mentors to 100!
Open to women aged 24 or over, the programme is designed to promote future leaders in sport and foster greater diversity within the sporting industry, as advocated by SIGA’s Universal Standards on Good Governance. Teaching vital leadership skills and creating invaluable experiences, the sixth month programme will offer prospective mentees the opportunities to forge relationships with women that have trodden the leadership path, with a combination of group as well as bilateral digital sessions.
