Written by Liam Ellison.
The head of the Chemist Warehouse WNBL Sally Phillips has been recognised with a Women Leaders in Sport Grant.
On Sunday, Minister for Sport Bridget McKenzie and Minister for Women Kelly O’Dwyer announced the successful applicants for the program.
More than 300 women from across 43 sports are set to be directly involved in the 2019 Women Leaders in Sport program.
“I am so honoured to be recognised by Sport Australia and the Office for Women and be chosen as one of the recipients of a Women Leaders in Sport grant” said Phillips.
“Thanks to the grant, I will be undertaking a six-month Mentoring to Advance Female Leadership Development Program with Michelle Redfern.”
The Women Leaders in Sport program was established in 2002 and along with Sport Australia and the Office for Women, continues to develop the leadership potential of female coaches, officials and administrators.
“Part of becoming a strong leader is about understanding yourself and reflecting on your accomplishments, which can help you work through what might be holding you back from taking that next step, while also assisting in establishing your values and vision for the future” explained Phillips.
“I hope that by continuing to work towards being an inspirational female leader in sport, I’ll play a part in changing the game for all girls and women who are aspiring to take on leadership positions.”
