After a quick glance at the current sports landscape, where you’ll review key facts and documented
barriers preventing women from holding leadership positions, you will focus on three main areas: 
Firstly, we’ll focus on leaving outdated styles of leadership in the past. To make room for more women and girls stepping into leadership roles we’ll need to examine how past leadership has fallen short and redefine what today’s great leaders need to be.
Secondly, you will pay attention to your own organization’s mindset. This includes focusing on the importance of creating an inclusive and diverse environment for all staff members in which unique ideas, perspectives, and experiences are embraced. 
Lastly, you will delve into topics that will help you further build inclusive approaches to your organization’s policies and procedures. 


To address the cultural stigmas and systemic inequalities that women and girls face in sport every day, we partnered with gender equity experts streetfootballworld, Soccer Without Borders, and Women Win to develop the Breaking Barriers Academy.
