About the Women in Sport Summit

The Women in Sport Summit is brought to you by the creators of the world’s largest Women in Technology Event Series. Our goal is to empower individuals and assist companies in reshaping their culture to improve equality.

The sports industry is worth over £20 billion and provides over 400 000 jobs to the UK population, but gender equality is still a major issue among business professionals and athletes.

This conference will drive progress by tackling the biggest challenges facing the industry, while highlighting women’s crucial role in the sector’s growth. Through its solutions-focused approach, the event will provide delegates with the skills and confidence they need to realise their ambitions at work.

Be inspired by success stories from industry experts, business leaders and professional sportspeople. Meet like-minded people and expand your network. Gather ideas about how to effect change in your own organisation. Learn skills to help you to advance your career and grow professionally.

You will leave the Women in Sport Summit empowered and energised to drive progress, both in your workplace and in your career.

Are you ready to level the playing field? Join us on June 19th to find out how!
