WSAFC signs NRF Gender Equity Charter

30 Jul

We are proud to announce that Springs have partnered up with Nothern Region Football to launch their NRF Gender Equity Charter, a public commitment to growing inclusiveness in football clubs.

The Charter was launched at NRF's Wahine in football event on Friday night. Representatives from Springs attended and were presented with a framed copy of the charter from Laura Menzies, Chief Executive of Northern Region Football.

Along with us, are the first clubs to sign the NRF Gender Equity Charter are those with facility upgrades as part of FIFA Women’s World Cup 2023 - these included Auckland United, Birkenhead United, Ellerslie, Mangere United and West Coast Rangers.

The Charter work focuses on these areas: 

  • Leadership - Leadership and governance that reflects and supports gender equity
  • Participation - Equitable participation and development opportunities, including juniors and youth girls-only football
  • Visibility - Make girls and women visible, showing their value in our club
  • Resources - Equitable resources and opportunities for girls and women
  • Facilities - Fit for purpose facilities that meet the specific needs of girls and women in our club

We look forward to sharing further progress over the next few months alongside our new Transition Director, Kereyn Smith CNZM and Women’s and Girls’ Working Group.
