OUR GAME Women and Non-Binary Persons in Media Program
The OUR GAME Women and Non-Binary Persons in Media Program (Media Program) is part of the Leadership and Development Pillar of Legacy ’23.
The Media Program aims to ensure that the push for gender parity in football is not limited to just on the pitch. It is critical for the future of the sport that there is increased women’s participation and leadership in every facet of the game, and this includes media & creatives.
It is well documented and researched that Women and Non-Binary persons are currently underrepresented in the Australian sports media landscape with just 14% of editorial content produced by women & non-binary persons. This is due to the fact that they currently face many barriers in the media and creative space.
As such, to address the underrepresentation of women in media women & non-binary persons, Football Australia is launching the ‘Our Game: Women and Non-Binary persons in Media Program.
Working with highly respected media supporters, Football Australia aims to provide unique and invaluable development opportunities in the following specific areas of Media:
