Increased Diversity set to amplify Lead Volley success

Volleyball WA is excited to announce the 2020 Lead Volley Panel presented by Think Again. The group of nine includes six new panel members, with four new young female leaders joining the panel.

The increased gender diversity reflects Volleyball WA’s commitment to supporting the ‘Gender Diversity Case for Change’  initiative set by the Department of Local Government, Sport and Cultural Industries.

Volleyball WA CEO Robyn Kuhl welcomed the increased diversity and said she was ‘excited to have such a talented group of panellists championing their generation’.

“The 2019 Lead Volley panel made some tremendous strides in identifying ways young people can have their voice heard. They have laid the foundation for the 2020 panel, and I implore the new panellists to rise to the challenge and continue their great work.” Kuhl said.

“The increased diversity of the 2020 panel is a testament to Volleyball WA’s ongoing commitment to a gender-balanced sport, both on and off the court. Our advisory panels and committees need to reflect our membership for us to take the required steps in making volleyball the game for all. So, to have four new women join the 2020 panel is  an essential and welcomed development for the sport.”

The panel will work across a range of topics that relate to their demographic and the sport. Utilising a framework developed in 2019 the new panel will select their objectives in January.

The Lead Volley Panel presented by Think Again provides a forum for young leaders to have a voice regarding their sport and be part of the decision making process.

Each panellist will serve for one year but can reapply each year they are eligible. Applications for the 2021 panel will open in November 2020.
