ABC is proud to announce a new partnership with Siren Sport in which we will work together to advance coverage of Australian women in sport.
Siren Sport is a non-profit organization dedicated to raising the voices of women and diverse and marginalized groups in the Australian sports media.
Over the next 12 months, the partnership will offer seasoned and aspiring sports writers the opportunity to have stories posted on the ABC Sport website.
“We are very excited to be working with our national broadcaster to further expand our work promoting women in sport and compliment ABC’s already great sports coverage for women,” said Siren co-founder Danielle Warby.
“Together we give women in sport the visibility they deserve. This partnership with ABC Sport allows us to continue our work and connect with a wider audience, which is really exciting. “
ABC Sport committed itself to the 50:50 equality project at the beginning of 2020, with the aim of increasing our female audience by producing more women-oriented sports stories and achieving gender equality in our content.
“We have made great strides in our coverage of women in sport over the past two years and this partnership with Siren will be very complementary to that work,” said ABC Sports Editor James Coventry.
“Our audience can only benefit from the variety of perspectives that the authors of Siren bring to our reporting.”
The partnership will also include a program aimed at developing aspiring writers from diverse backgrounds.
“ABC Sport is just as passionate as we are about creating avenues in the sports media and we look forward to continuing this work together,” said Warby.
