Active Women Strategy Awards

UNSW is the first university in Australia to launch a specific strategy for women's sport. The UNSW 2025 Women's Sport and Active Recreation Strategy was launched in March 2020, and is commonly known as the UNSW Active Women Strategy. Download and read the Active Women Strategy.

revised version for 2024/25 has since been published showcasing the commitment UNSW has made to this strategy.

The UNSW Active Women Strategy was a global finalist in 2021 for the FISU (International University Sport Federation) Gender Equality Award. In 2022, we held our inaugural Active Women's Strategy Awards where we also announced our new Active Women's Coaching & Officiating grants.

The strategy builds upon the SHE CAN program run by Arc Sport @ UNSW, and has received significant support and guidance from the NSW Office of Sport and aligns with the state-wide Her Sport Her Way Strategy
