Career Coach is a new programme offered by Rowing NZ to develop coaches with ambitions to progress in their coaching. The programme will evolve depending on an identified gap in our coaching system. Currently Rowing NZ has identified the need to have more women coaching in Rowing NZ teams and to provide support and skills for more women to be head coaches.
Rowing NZ is missing out on the values and skills that women bring – and we know that environments flourish with diversity. We know that increasing the number of women in leadership positions such as head coaches, Rowing NZ coach/selector and RPC roles will demonstrate the pathways and opportunities for females beyond being an athlete or assistant coach.
To drive change and create a more inclusive environment, Rowing NZ plans to provide a forum to develop leadership, confidence and capability in female coaches. This programme will begin in July 2019 and will continue through to July 2021 and will consist of residential workshops, one on one development and online group forums.
