Help Golf Australia shape the future of women in golf

POSTED ON October 10, 2018 @ 9:41 am

Golf Australia (GA) is calling for expressions of interest from women within the golfing community or those considering golf who would like to share their experiences in golf.

GA is a participant in the Male Champions of Change (Sport) program (MCCS). Our MCCS participation forms part of our commitment to our Vision 2025 women and girls strategy that aims to increase the engagement of women and girls in golf.

The Male Champions of Change approach is based on Listening, Learning and Leading:

•  Listening to understand the facts, relevant research, existing frameworks and what has and hasn’t worked in the past

•  Learning through engagement with women peers, gender experts and our own employees – women and men – to perspectives on the issue, new ideas and potential solutions

•  Leading through action, starting within our own organisations

Members and sports within the MCCS group have committed to conducting focus groups within their sports as part of the listening and learning process. To do this GA is encouraged to facilitate safe, supportive and welcoming spaces that invite women in to share their experiences within golf.

The confidential insights from the focus groups will inform discussions at a later MCCS session and will play an important role in our in the development of our Vision 2025 actions.

We would like to invite you to express your interest in a Listen & Learn Session to be held in Victoria via this link: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/MCCLLCommunity

Once expressions of interest have been received, GA will invite a diverse group women from across our golf community to attend a Listen & Learn session.

To thank you for your time, all participants will receive 2 Big Swing indoor golf simulator vouchers courtesy of Drummond Golf (valued at $30 each).

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact Chyloe Kurdas, National Female Participation Manager, Golf Australia – ChyloeK@golf.org.au.
