Last Chance to Join Us for Women in Sport 2019

We are now just over ten days away from our annual gathering to highlight and explore the role of Women in Irish Sport.

There are a very limited number of tickets remaining for the half-day session taking place at the studios of RTÉ on Wednesday morning, November 13th.

Today we are delighted to announce that ILGU CEO Sinéad Heraty and 20X20 co-creator Sarah Colgan will be joining our strong line up of influential speakers that will be joining us and sharing their thoughts through the morning.

They join Sarah Keane, Joanne O’Riordan, Cliona O’Leary, Kellie Harrington, Jessie Barr and many more to debate key issues in the ongoing work to create equality of opportunity and esteem for women in the world of sport.

This is the sixth year we will have gathered to debate the issues, celebrate the wins and question where we need to go next.

We will look at how Swedish TV has pulled together different sporting bodies to create far greater awareness and visibility of its sporting stars competing beyond the major spectator sports.

We will be talking to those who are making the greatest difference in how Women can be treated as more than second class citizens when it comes to sport.

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

Last year’s event sold out well in advance and we are down to only 10 available tickets now for our 2019 event so please do book your place if you want to attend as there is nothing we can do to make the venue any bigger.
