Did you know that only 20% of the Home countries' coaches at the 2006 Commonwealth games in Melbourne were women.
The role of the advisory group is to offer expertise that can help guide the work and priorities of the Women's Sport and Fitness Foundation.
The group aims to bring together individuals who, collectively, have a wide range of expertise, perspectives and involvement within different areas of sport. Their objectives are to raise awareness of the issues women and girls face, and to act as advocates of the Women's Sport and Fitness Foundation and women's sport.
As its name suggests, the role of the advisory group is 'advisory' only. The Board of Trustees of the Women's Sport and Fitness Foundation take ultimate responsibility for decision-making.
The advisory group does not have any authority over the organisation or the staff, and will only make recommendations to be considered by the Board of Trustees.
The WSFF Chair will attend and chair the advisory group meetings.
From time to time, as necessary, the group may invite specialist speakers to attend the meetings.
The current members of the advisory group are:
Dr Gill Clarke
Kelly Holmes OBE
Hope Powell OBE
Professor Margaret Talbot
Dr Anita White
