Ingrid Sibusisiwe Mangcu has joined 24 inspiring women in rugby to join the Capgemini Women in Rugby Leadership Programme


South Africa (27 May 2024) – Ingrid Sibusisiwe Mangcu has been selected as one of 25 inspiring female leaders from around the world who will participate in the Capgemini Women in Rugby Leadership Programme in 2024 and 2025.

The programme is driving the visibility of female leaders from within the rugby family and helping to accelerate the development of the women’s and girls’ game on the road to the Women’s Rugby World Cup 2025. Each participant will have access to personalised coaching and training sessions via Capgemini’s internal University to help their professional development and create a global network of female leaders.

Ninety-eight scholars have completed the programme since its inception in 2018. Each participant is eligible to apply for an additional discretionary grant of up to £5,000 to help aid their development and learning.

Ingrid Sibusisiwe Mangcu from South Africa, is part of this year’s intake following her career in General Management and Human Resources.

“We are thrilled to announce our next cohort of inspirational female leaders in partnership with Capgemini. They will gain priceless learnings and experience through this world-class programme and will inspire many more girls and women from within their unions and regions.”

“It’s also vitally important that we continue to support all of the applicants for the scholarship programme, as we build an exciting network of emerging female talent. These women will become the next generation of leaders in rugby across the world. We look forward to announcing further details, as part of our Global Impact Plan.”

“A huge thank you to our unions and regional associations that helped us to identify these individuals and to Capgemini, who share our vision and passion to increase opportunities for women at all levels of the game. We are already seeing our scholars make a real difference as they progress and take on new leadership roles in rugby. We have no doubt this new cohort will excel over the next 18 months and beyond, as we grow our leadership teams and build towards Women’s RWC 2025.” – Sally Horrox, World Rugby Chief of Women’s Rugby

The support won’t only be given to the successful participants. Due to the volume and high calibre of this year’s candidates, World Rugby will explore opportunities to provide all applicants with ongoing support and mentorship, continuing to build upon the existing network of superb women within the game.

This is great news as we gear up for the Women’s Rugby World Cup in 2025.
