WOMEN AND GIRLS
Being more pro-active to ensure that women & girls feel genuinely included (not just welcomed) is vital to help the club build a more sustainable future. The benefits include:
- Ability to attract more members, supporters and volunteers
- Diversification, leading to better decision-making
- Ability to attract more players
- Wider sponsorship & fundraising appeal
- Representative of and meeting the needs of your community
These messages/principles could help clubs focus on being more inclusive in general (culture, age, sexual orientation, race, religion, ability etc.) not just in respect to recruiting and retaining more women & girls.
