This report to the New Zealand Olympic Committee presents the outcomes of a pilot mentoring programme for women entering sports governance.
Over the six month pilot a regional peer mentoring group was formed, and one-on-one pair mentoring relationships established for women working within a variety of sports. The report describes the processes employed across the three phases of scoping and establishment, implementation and monitoring, and evaluation, and summarises key learnings from each stage. Promotion of the programme, resource development, identification and selection of participants, establishment of agreements and ongoing support are each outlined.
The report concludes that the pilot was successful in meeting its stated objectives, and a range of recommendations are provided to refine the process as it continues.
