Womens Rugby

World Rugby now has 61 scholars active in leadership roles globally. World Rugby partnered with the Regional Associations to identify twelve talented leaders for significant professional development support. Capgemini became a global partner of the Leadership programme and offered the 2022 scholars excellent development opportunities.

In 2023, because of Capgemini’s involvement, in partnership with Harvard Business School, the scholarship offer is now much greater, with a range of prestigious courses, coaching, mentoring and wider opportunities for women in sport and business.
