Isle of Man-based women in sport sought for Commonwealth Leadership Programme

The Commonwealth Games Association of the Isle of Man (CGA) is seeking applications from local women involved in Manx sport to participate in the Commonwealth Women’s Leadership Programme (CWLP).

The programme provides access to education and networking opportunities with an ultimate aim to empower women to become leaders within their sport and communities. It is available to all female leaders working in sport within either a professional or voluntary capacity, including coaches, administrators, coaches, executives, official and physios, who can demonstrate a need for such an opportunity.

The successful participants will receive a £5000 scholarship to support them on their individual development pathway. This programme will support participants to not only clarify their leadership ambitions and recognise their leadership strengths but more importantly will broaden their understanding of their role in supporting equality within the Commonwealth Sport Movement. Participants will be supported by both local and international mentors to support their journey and ambitions.

The closing date for applications is 5th February 2022 and any potential Isle of Man applicants should contact the CGA in the first instance via email to iomcga@outlook.com .
