Insight Hub

Women in Sport Aotearoa is committed to the power of evidence-based research and its ability to create a strong case for change.

In its Strategic Plan, Women in Sport Aotearoa has pledged to challenge the sports system by:

  • Collaborating with key stakeholders to identify key research priorities, focussed around knowledge gaps
  • Commissioning, initiating and advocating for priority research
  • Sharing results and insights to hold stakeholders to account and change behaviours
  • Convening and utilising the Women in Sport Aotearoa Research Consortium to deliver New Zealand and Oceania research
  • Identifying and supporting international researchers and global research agencies; sharing results/insights
  • Building an international reputation as a world leading Research Hub
  • Respecting Te Tiriti o Waitangi, as New Zealand’s founding document

This Insight Hub is home to a growing amount of insights, case studies, research and tools that you can use to help further gender equity for women and girls.
