About

Sportette is a women in sport think tank.

It challenges the way you think about women in sport and will change the way you think about women and sport. We aim to give you insightful, interesting, thought-provoking features, profiles and opinion pieces on the women involved in all areas of sport.

From the athletes, coaches and trainers, to those who work in the media, administration or in the clubhouse canteen, every woman involved in sport has an interesting story to tell. Here on Sportette we’ll have you glued to every word of their battles, triumphs, fears and joy.

You’ll find Sportette opinion pieces will soon have you fired up and thinking about a certain subject in a completely different way.

In addition to this website Sportette holds the annual Sportette Summit for Women in Sport and Business. The Summit brings together some of the most powerful men & women in sport and business to facilitate discussion and formulate strategies on how to ensure continued progression for women in both the boardroom and sporting field.

Women in sport and business share a unique relationship and each face similar challenges but moving forward can work together to provide key learnings, inspiration and valuable networking opportunities.

The inaugural Sportette Summit was held at the QT Gold Coast on November 22 2017.
