Kate Corkery to depart ASC

Ms. Corkery joined the ASC in 2018 and is a well-respected leader for women in sport. ASC CEO Kieren Perkins OAM said, “Kate leaves a rich legacy in many areas of athletic ability, including governance, community coaching and diversity, equity and inclusion.”

“Significantly, Kate led the overall sport co-design of the Sport Governance Principles and Sport Governance Standards which, for the first time in Australia, embed a consistent and national approach to improving governance for all organizations across the sector – national and state level”.

Additionally, Ms. Corkery has overseen the establishment of the ASC’s Australian Sport Learning Center (ASLC), which provides world-class learning and helps develop skills and abilities in our sports and the wider community. A testament to their leadership was the ASLC’s global recognition with a 2022 Brandon Hall Group HCM Excellence Award.

In 2020, Kate was awarded a medal for her work supporting the establishment of the National Australia Day Council Australian Sports Alliance for People with Disabilities which recently achieved a significant milestone by registering itself as a company in its quest to collaborate, promote and facilitate inclusive sports and physical activity for people with disabilities, impairments or limitations.

Ms Corkery said: “The journey of increasing the skills of our incredible volunteer and paid sports workforce is so rewarding. We know if sport will meet challenges such as the increase in non-sports recreation, our volunteers are at the forefront of creating a safe, inclusive and fun environment and we must give them the support and tools to do so effectively”.

“The many incredible people I have worked with at the community, state and territory organizations and national level give me confidence that the many projects I have led will continue to gain momentum and build when the ASC is in its next big strategic horizon is 2032 for performance, diversity and inclusion across the sector.”
