OFC is hosting an interactive online Club Development Workshop on the newly released Gender Equality playbook to help clubs throughout the region champion gender equality.

The workshop will be presented by OFC Social Responsibility Impact Manager, Chelsey Taylor on Wednesday 23rd August from 6:30pm to 8pm (New Zealand Time) and will be delivered through OFC Learn, Oceania Football Confederation’s online educational platform that offers free courses, webinars and resources.

The 2023 FIFA Women’s World Cup has provided significant development in the opportunities for women’s football and for Oceania to build upon the success to create inclusive and equal sport.

The Gender Equality Playbook workshop aims to build a football community that thrives on fairness, unity, and shared success, and celebrates the talents of everyone, regardless of their gender.

Whether you are a football club executive, coach, player, fan, or advocate for gender equality in sports, the workshop offers a unique opportunity for you to be part of a transformative experience that will shape the future of club football.

OFC Clubs and Leagues Manager Steven Dillon expressed his optimism for the workshop, highlighting its potential to bring about tangible changes within clubs throughout the region.

“This workshop has the potential to be hugely impactful on clubs across the region as it will provide tangible action points on the steps that can be taken to improve gender equity.” Said Dillon.

“We understand many clubs are seeking guidance on this area and we hope that through this introduction workshop this will help to signpost key initiatives that can take place on the ground.”

The Playbook is a valuable resource and an important step in OFC’s Legacy Programme that explores the barriers and strategic actions required to deliver greater equality in our region.

“We are committed to promoting gender equity in all clubs and leagues and have no doubt that this resource can help us all succeed on this important journey for our game.” Said Dillon

This event will be delivered in English however a live French interpretation option will be available.
