IWG Captains Lunch

SportsConnect is proudly working together with Women in Sport Aotearoa, Ngā Wāhine Hākinakina o Aotearoa, to host the IWG Captain’s Lunch on Tuesday, 7 May in Auckland including a panel featuring IWG Global Patron, the Rt Hon. Helen Clark ONZ. 

The luncheon will be hosted by an array of “Captains” from New Zealand sport and recreation and will include a mix of athletes, coaches, CEOs and board directors. A panel discussion, involving Helen Clark and business and sports leaders, will focus on gender equity in the workplace and discuss why diverse leadership drives high performance.

Funds raised will go to Women in Sport Aotearoa, to assist in the delivery of the IWG and to support local programmes, focussed on ensuring that women and girls gain equity of opportunity to participate, compete and build careers in sport and recreation. The IWG – the International Working Group on Women & Sport Secretariat and Conference 2018-2022 – is currently hosted by New Zealand.
