Her Sport Her Way Awards

Recognising and celebrating the achievements of leaders in women's sport.

Many individuals, clubs and organisations are striving to give women and girls more opportunities and equal access to participate in their sport. We want to recognise those people and highlight the important work they are doing.

Recognising and celebrating the achievements of leaders in women’s sport through awards and storytelling shines a light on gender equity across the sector.
