Female Football Leaders Programme

The Electric Ireland sponsored programme - which launched in 2013 - is designed to help address the low levels of women in key decision-making roles within football and, to date, there have been more than 150 graduates.

The course is suitable for women who are currently playing, volunteering, or working in football and who are curious about their leadership potential or already aspire to leadership positions and want to develop their skills to achieve this.

The programme is delivered by Reboot Ltd founders Lisa Strutt and Sinead Sharkey-Steenson.

Applicants will need to make a 90% attendance rate and the course will run online (Zoom) one Thursday evening a month from April until the graduation night in December.
