The third Annual Sport for Business Women in Sport Conference will take place on November 30th, 2017 in the Fitzgerald Debating Chamber at UCD.
This year’s theme will be about Changing the Game in a range of different areas and we will be announcing further details of the event in the coming days.
In 2016 we brought Sally Hancock and Sally Horrocks over from the UK to share their thoughts on how real progress had taken place there.
They were joined by a great athletes panel including Ireland Women’s Rugby Captain Niamh Briggs, Irish soccer international Louise Quinn and Paralympian swimmer Ellen Keane.
Minister Patrick O’Donovan shared his thoughts on how Government could play its part and signaled his intent to light the fire that became the call for 30% representation of women on Sporting National Governing Bodies.
What will 2017 hold? Well, we promise it will be about doing and that it will cover areas which are both attainable and that will make a real difference.
Among them will be a look at how Women can transition from the playing field to the wider world of sport, a look at what will be the next advance in the media coverage of Women in sport and conversation with those who are setting the agenda.
Let us know if you would be interested in partnering with us in this event and let’s play a part together in making it happen.
