Women in Sport Conference 2019

November 13, 2019 @ 8:00 am - 2:00 pm

Our annual gathering to highlight and explore the role of Women in Irish Sport will take place in Dublin on Wednesday morning, November 13th.

It promises, as ever, in this its sixth year to be a lively morning looking at a number of important issues and learning from campaigns that will come to life this year in Ireland and across Europe.

Coming along will mean you are part of the debate, part of the future of Women in Sport.
