Inaugural women’s sports workshop

237068THE Fiji Women in Sport Commission held its first leadership and administration workshop for the Western Division at the Tanoa Hotel in Nadi yesterday.

The one-day workshop attracted more than 40 participants.

Commission chairperson Suzie Yee said they were surprised by the overwhelming response.

She said their aim was to get more women into leadership positions within sporting organisations.

“It is the first time that we held this in the Western Division and it was great to see the interest,” Yee said.

“We focussed on leadership, administration, the barriers and mentoring. I’m sure that the participants have learnt a lot.

“We want to get more women into leadership positions. Not only the leadership in the office or the administration side but also in coaching and managing of different sports.

“We are definitely going to have more workshops.”

Participants from Ba, Lautoka and Nadi attended the workshop which was sponsored by the International Olympic Committee Solidarity program.
