The course „Women Leadership in the sports industry: raising awareness to support action“ is a
four-week course (every Tuesday two hours online) offered by the Academy of Leadership
Sciences Switzerland, Zurich, for women working or aspiring to work and grow in the Sports
This course is different from everything you have seen before. We believe empowerment comes
from the knowledge of women’s history and the awareness of women’s condition. We will
combine theoretical knowledge, practical advice and self-assessments, which will effectively
give you the tools and empower you to conduct yourself professionally in the Sports Industry
with confidence and clear objectives.
Over these 8 hours, we will analyse women‘s present condition, become aware of women‘s
history, explain women‘s socialization and tackle with a hands-on approach the topic of women
leadership, based on authors like Gerda Lerner, Michelle Perrot, Simone de Beauvoir and others.
