Australian Canoeing Board member Catherine Ordway will be presenting at the South Australian Office for Recreation and Sport (ORS) 2014 Sport and Women Conference;- "Governance, Diversity and Opportunity – Are You on Board?"
The conference will take place on Monday 7 April 2014, at the Hilton Adelaide, and will be followed by networking drinks.
Organisations with greater gender diversity in their top teams financially outperform their less diverse competition. But, is the sporting sector making the most of gender diversity?
The conference is one of a number of strategies ORS is implementing to address the underrepresentation of women on boards and in key leadership positions within sport and recreation organisations in South Australia.
The conference is aimed at senior level executives from business and sporting organisations at national and state levels, as well as, men and women in the South Australian community who work, play and/or officiate in sport
The Australian Sports Commission mandatory governance principles require national sporting organisations to have 40% female representation on their boards by 2015.
