حول WSLA

تم تحديد نقص التمثيل وانعدام فرص التنمية للقيادات النسائية في الرياضة منذ عقود. على الرغم من الجهود المتنوعة لتصحيح الوضع ، لا تزال القيادة الرياضية يهيمن عليها الذكور والذكر. في عام 2013 ، تم إنشاء WSLA لتغيير هذا. 

We know that women encounter issues and barriers to advance within systems of sport leadership. Crucially however, we do not aim to “fix”, “upskill” or “teach” women. We know that women already have the skills and knowledge to excel. Instead, we challenge our participants to really think about what leadership means to them, what they want to achieve, how they can go about doing it, and provide insight into tackling problematic systems and cultures. WSLA facilitates a personal learning experience, cultivated within a safe, multicultural, diverse, trusting environment, that will impact you in ways you could never anticipate.

WSLA is premised upon four objectives to support the further development of participants. We term these The four Cs: competencies, confidence, context, and commitment.

leadership Competencies

to support female leaders to enhance their leadership skills and behaviours to navigate the challenges that are part of leading an organisation


to encourage female leaders to identify their strengths, goals and ambitions to support their desired career path; championing who they are and others around them


to understand the organisational and cultural environment, recognising opportunities and challenges, and influencing fellow allies and champions to create positive change

Commitment of employers

to engage with the employers of female leaders and support their ongoing development and wider influence

فلسفة القيادة WSLA

هناك هدفان رئيسيان لبرامج WSLA التي تدعم التطوير الإضافي للمشاركين في ما يلي:


  • الكفاءات القيادية - دعم القيادات النسائية لمواصلة تطوير كفاءاتهن أو سلوكياتهن القيادية ، وتعزيز أسلوبهن القيادي ، وتمكينهن ليصبحن كما يردن ، وتجاوز التحديات التي تشكل جزءًا من قيادة المنظمة.

  • الثقة - تشجيع القائدات على تحديد نقاط قوتهن والسعي وراء الأهداف واغتنام الفرص والتقدم في مسارهن المهني. سيكونون واثقين من قدرتهم على الدفاع عن أنفسهم والآخرين في المستقبل

Our commitment to participants

51 women from 24 countries have been financially supported by WSLA to attend our residential week programmes in the UK since 2014. Every year, we do all we can to ensure we continue this important commitment and ensure the diversity of thought and experiences amongst the cohort.

Further, we host a competitive application process for graduates to return as support facilitators on a residential week programme. The graduate benefits from skills development and mentorship with our expert team at Leading Edge Performance.
