A group of female Olympians has this week graduated from a New Zealand Olympic Committee run initiative designed to help athletes transition from sport performance to sport leadership.

The New Zealand Women’s Sport Leadership Academy (WSLA NZ) was launched in 2017, with 18 Olympians involved in the first edition of the 18-month programme. WSLA NZ is being run in partnership with the University of Chichester, England which launched the first international WSLA programme in 2014.The academy, which is run for New Zealand Olympians, provides a unique learning environment that supports the women to further develop their leadership competencies over four workshops. It also links the participants into a global network of female leaders in sport.
