Sport for Business, in partnership with Liberty Insurance, today begins the search to identify the 50 Most Influential Women in Irish Sport.
For 2017 we are extending the recognition given to women who are taking a lead role in sport by also identifying 50 of the next generation that are coming through, at pace, to make their mark within sport.
This is not about Women’s sport, it is about the influence that women are wielding across all sport. We will identify leaders on and off the field of play. They will include those who are role models in terms of their abilities on and off the field of play. They will come from teams and individual sports, from sponsorship partners, from the media, from the administrative corridors of power and from places where influence may be subtle but no less powerful.
There are those who stand out as obvious candidates and others who you may be meeting for the first time. The one common thread among our two groups of 50 women is that they care about sport and are using their intelligence, insight and powers of innovation to make sport relevant to all.
We want your help in making sure that this list is representative and you can make your nominations for who you think should be included right here.
We will start publication of the lists on Monday March 27th.
