IWG New Zealand Secretariat, Women in Sport Aotearoa (WISPA) is delighted to announce the appointment of Charlotte Guscott-Gregory to the senior fixed-term position of Project Manager.
Charlotte is a professional programme and project manager, who specialises in operational planning and delivery, strategic thinking, stakeholder management, problem-solving and risk management.
Over the past five years, she has worked in project leadership positions across a number of high-profile sporting events, including the Gold Coast Commonwealth Games 2018, the ASB Classic 2018, the Rugby League World Cup 2017, World Masters Games 2017 and Volvo Ocean Race Auckland Stopover 2015. More recently from 2018 through to now, she has branched out into local and central government and has worked for Sport New Zealand, Callaghan Innovation and MBIE. For many months held a lead planning role with APEC 2021 New Zealand for both Auckland Unlimited and then MFAT, before this project moved to a digital delivery model due to COVID-19.
Charlotte will oversee the staging of the Sport NZ Women + Girls Summit in September 2021 and continue the excellent work done to date on the 8th IWG World Conference on Women & Sport in May 2022. The latter is one of the “big four” women’s sports events coming to Aotearoa between 2021 – 2023, with the women’s World Cups in Rugby, Cricket and Football also being hosted. It is the largest global gathering of experts on gender equity in sport and physical activity, with 2,000+ expected across the physical-digital hybrid programme.
Rachel Froggatt, Secretary General of IWG said:
“We have an exciting period of programme delivery ahead of us and Charlotte’s deep experience in the events sector coupled with her outgoing personality will make a real impact over the next 12 months, and in particular, continue to give our key stakeholders the support needed to leverage the exceptional opportunity for change offered by the 8thIWG World Conference on Women & Sport.
We are so pleased to have someone of Charlotte’s calibre on our team and look forward to doing some great work together.”
Charlotte Guscott-Gregory, Project Manager, said:
“I am thrilled to join the Women in Sport Aotearoa team at such an exciting time. Being able to merge my professional skill-set in an area and sector that I am passionate about is pretty special. To be able to work alongside such a talented team and network over the next 12 months is going to be a real highlight for me.”
Charlotte will work out of WISPA’s office in Mt Eden, Auckland New Zealand.
