Kwarula to IAAF Athletics Seminar

Sharon Kwarula will head to London tomorrow for the IAAF Women in World Athletics Seminar to be held at the Olympic Stadium. “The IAAF Gender Leadership Taskforce has identified a need to provide specific leadership and development opportunities for aspiring female leaders within the Sport of Athletics” said Acting CEO Nigel Garfitt last month when inviting Member Federations to Nominate candidates. Kwarula was selected along with Kiribati’s  Eritabeta Teaiwa to attend the Seminar with New Zealander Annette Purvis who represents Oceania on the IAAF Women's Committee.The three Oceania delegates will join 31 others representing Europe, Africa, Asia, and the Americas. The aim of the seminar is to support delivery of the IAAF and Oceania Area’s minimum gender targets and will include such topics as the under-representation of women in athletics; why diversity and gender equality is important; leadership; and the IAAF’s own Governance Reform Project. Importantly, the seminar will provide aspiring female leaders with excellent networking opportunities and establish relationships with mentors to assist in their own personal development.
