Women in Sport Aotearoa, Ngā Wāhine Hākinakina o Aotearoa, is a charity that exists to transform society through leadership, advocacy and research, ensuring that all women and girls gain equity of opportunity to participate, compete and build careers in play, active recreation and sport in Aotearoa New Zealand.
Our strategic vision is to see ‘women and girls valued, visible and influential in sport’. We are working toward this through delivery of the WISPA Insight Hub, change leadership, advocacy campaigns, speaking engagements and events like the Captains Lunch and the annual Sport NZ Women + Girls Summit.
We work across Aotearoa New Zealand and currently, we are also the global delivery agent for the International Working Group (IWG) on Women and Sport Secretariat & Conference 2018-2022, with the 8th IWG World Conference taking place in Tāmaki Makaurau Auckland from 14-17 November 2022.
The Women in Sport Aotearoa Board and Chief Executive are leaders with strong sport, business, academic and public sector expertise. Our Patron is the Rt Hon Helen Clark ONZ, former New Zealand Prime Minister and former Administrator of the United Nations Development Programme.
Our funding comes from a mix of Grants & Trusts, Donations, Fundraising & Gifts and Commercial Partnerships.
