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. We empower individuals and assist companies in reshaping their culture to improve equality.

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

This conference will drive progress by tackling the biggest challenges facing the industry, women’s crucial role in the sector’s growth, and provide solutions to break down the key barriers facing women.

Through a combination of inspiring keynotes from industry leaders, practical takeaways, and the opportunity to meet fellow women in the industry, you will leave feeling empowered, energised and together we can get the ball to bounce the same way for everybody.

Be part of the movement and join a vibrant community of 400 professionals to make an impact on the sector and boost your career at The Women in Sport Summit 2018.
