International Women’s Day 2019

Sports Central are proud to support and celebrate International Women’s Day 2019.  The campaign theme for this year is #BalanceforBetter

International Women’s Day (March 8) is a global day celebrating the social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women. The day also marks a call to action for accelerating gender parity.

2019’s campaign focuses on #BalanceforBetter. Balance is not a women’s issue, it’s a business issue. The race is on for the gender-balanced boardroom, a gender-balanced government, gender-balanced media coverage, a gender-balance of employees, more gender-balance in wealth, gender-balanced sports coverage and the list goes on.

We encourage sports clubs, associations and all members of the sporting community to not only celebrate and promote #BalanceforBetter today, but to promote this message everyday.  Everyone has a part to play – all the time, everywhere.

Sports Central are committed to creating #BalanceforBetter through promotion and implementation of gender equality and prevention of violence against women programs as well as an organisational commitment to The Communities of Respect and Equality Alliance (CoRE) partnership.
