Researching the career pathways of women across different generations may help us to understand why women remain under-represented in leadership roles in New Zealand sport. The purpose of this inter-University research is to examine the university learning experience, career expectations and experiences of females in New Zealand sport organisations. The experiences of two groups of women will be examined. The first group will be recent female sport management graduates and the second will be female CEOs of New Zealand sport organisations.
Investigate the university learning experience, expectations and work experiences of recent female graduates and CEOs in sports management to synthesise these data and report relevant findings for the development of university courses, career counselling and to report findings to educators to help better prepare these students for the workforce.
