Women You Can Bank On presents five of the most Influential Women in Sport for its 5th year.

The truly unique Women You Can Bank On event is returning; bigger and better for its 5th year, Thursday 4th March 2021. The theme for 2021 is “Thriving Through Change”.

The event is timed to align with UN International Women’s Day and will be a celebration of the ‘women in sport’ movement. It will feature a live moderated conversation with leaders from what is known as “The Big Four” – the major women’s sport events coming to Aotearoa New Zealand in the next three years.

It will open with remarks from the new Chief Executive of Sport New Zealand, Raelene Castle ONZM.

“The Big Four” leaders include:

  • Dr. Farah Palmer, Board Member of the Organising Committee and NZ Rugby Board Member – representing the 2021 Rugby World Cup
  • Liz Dawson MNZM, Chair of the Local Organising Committee – representing the 2022 ICC Women’s Cricket World Cup
  • Raewyn Lovett ONZM, Co-Chair of the International Working Group (IWG) on Women & Sport – representing the 2022 IWG World Conference on Women & Sport
  • Dr. Johanna Wood, President of NZ Football – representing the 2023 FIFA Women’s World Cup

They will be supported at the event by the Chief Executive of Women in Sport Aotearoa (WISPA), Rachel Froggatt, along with representatives from Women in Sport Otago (WISPO), the local regional network.

This unique business event experience is a combination of inspirational speakers, panel discussions, networking and fine dining. The perfect platform for compelling conversations, to reflect, reset and grow.

The 2021 event will see the inclusion of the first “sister event”, innovative, challenging and change making workshops scheduled to occur the 5th March.
