Rugby Africa continues to boost women’s involvement in the game, including leadership, and is calling on all talented women with the potential to become leaders in rugby to submit their applications for the 2021 Women’s Executive Leadership Scholarships.
This opportunity qualifies two women from Africa to join the remaining 10 women from around the world, who will each receive a £10,000 scholarship for leadership development support for formal or informal education, conferences, forums, mentoring and best practice study tours. Each scholarship will be tailored to meet the professional development needs of the successful applicants.
Said World Rugby – General Manager Women’s Rugby, Katie Sadleir, “We are now into the fourth year of the executive leadership scholarship programme and have been able to assist 37 women from around the world thus far. This investment from World Rugby into great leadership has been a game changer as we work with unions and regions to adopt best practice in terms of diversity in senior management and governance roles.”
Some of the Africa scholarship recipients who have risen in the ranks and made valuable contributions to the sport include Rolande Boro, Maha Zaoui, Regina Lunyolo, and Vanessa Doble.
