Cycling Victoria (CV) in partnership with Cycling Australia (CA) and the International Cycling Union (UCI) will be hosting a Women’s Forum on January 12 in conjunction with the 2014 Cycling Australia National Road Championships in Ballarat.
This is a unique opportunity to hear from all levels of cycling administration as well as an opportunity for riders and supporters of women's cycling to raise issues and provide feedback.
CV, CA and the UCI will provide an update on progressing women's cycling:
A State perspective: Cycling Victoria will focus on progress to date and the important role that elite athletes have for being champions of change;
A National vision: the Cycling Australia Women's Commission will outline their draft strategy for progressing women's cycling from grassroots to elite competition in Australia;
The Global agenda: Women in Cycling is a key priority of the UCI. The UCI Women’s Commission will outline its purpose, strategic tenets encompassing the grass-roots to elite spectrum, and progress to date. Participants will be provided with the opportunity to learn how they can contribute, become agents of change and leaders in the development of women’s cycling.
We invite all individuals interested in furthering women’s cycling to join us and our very special guests for this unique opportunity to discuss and connect on issues from the grassroots to global continuum.
