Despite the increase of female athletes involvement in sports, Uzbek women sports leadership remain invisible. Hence, the purpose of study was on the exploration of womens experiences currently working in the sports management. Qualitative method, i.e. eight in depth interviews among female leaders in a chosen sports organization of Uzbekistan gave profound insight on their career success and failure actors, their leadership qualities, styles and effectiveness to lead.
This investigation found that Uzbek female sport leaders had several common experiences during their career. Specifically, they cited that family, education, mentorship and personal factors were facilitators to successful performance whereas gender perceptions and talent discrimination existing in organizations, lack of interpersonal relations and financial discrimination were barriers to negotiate these in a male dominated world. Based on the findings detailed advices and policies are suggested that will increase female sports participation.
