The theme of gender equality has been raised by various prominent women over the past few years and through this, gained quite some prominence: Sheryl Sandberg with her book and circles LeanIn, the Chime For Change campaign started by Gucci’s Frida Giannini, Beyoncé and Salma Hayek and many more.

Now it is time for the sports industry not only to start a movement of women supporting each other, but first and foremost to understand what is currently being done. This is what this conference is all about. Both the IOC and UEFA have programmes in place to support women, which may not have the prominence they deserve.

Women of all industries in relation to sports will be invited to the event with the aim to create a platform for them to exchange their experiences and create a network. A second conference will follow and local networking events will be set up. Please sign up for the conference on www.womeninsport.com/conference.
