On November 30th Sport for Business will host ‘Teaming Up for Women’s Sport’, an event where 100 of those with an interest in and the capacity to improve the parity of esteem granted to Women’s sport will gather, discuss and put a plan of action together to help make things happen.
The event will be held in the new Conference Centre in Griffith College, Dublin and will be limited to 100 participants with an interest in Women’s Sport.
Minister Patrick O’Donovan, Captain of the Irish Women’s Rugby Team Niamh Briggs, Paralympic Silver medallist from Rio Ellen Keane; RTE Deputy Head of TV Sport Cliona O’Leary; Cycling Ireland, the FAI, Dublin City Council Sport and Wellbeing Partnership and of course sportswomen.ie will be there on the day.
Sally Hancock, Managing Partner, Y Sport and Chair, Women in Sport in Britain will tell the group how they have driven and created great change in relation to the perception and the reality of Women’s Sport.
There will also be a session on the brands that are driving Women’s Sport forward and Lidl who has made a huge impact on Irish women’s sport and in particular Ladies Gaelic Football in the last year will also be there.
While women’s sport has issues that need to be addressed worldwide, this session could be the start of a unified approach where those who can influence change will work together and make things happen for the benefit of Irish Women’s Sport.
