Thank you to all the men and women who attended the very first Women In Sport Business webinar event. A huge thank you our wonderful speakers, particularly Sarah McChesney-Gordon, not only for being a fabulous moderator but also suming up the event beautifully.
What a hugely inspiring Sport Business Connected speaker series event yesterday.
The last 14 months have been hard on the whole business world due to Covid, but it’s also very clear to see how much of an impact it’s had on sport events (we’re all longing to be back at Wimbledon eating strawberries and cream Alexandra Willis!), aswell as progressing the women in sport and sport business agenda.
It would have been very easy for yesterday’s sessions to be a moan fest about the challenges and problems everyone’s faced since we last met up, but instead there was an energy and complete focus on the positives we have to look forward to:
– More ambition and enthusiasm than ever before to drive forward the diversity agenda. Speak up, change incorrect language, push for your businesses to recruit far and wide.
– A commitment to work together as Allies cross-industry. Regardless of gender, background, religious beliefs etc, we all need to work together to encourage and retain women in the sport/business space
– Most importantly, we shall meet up for that glass of wine and be able to embrace each other soon!
Well done to Sarah Butler for once again working her magic and bringing together such an awesome group of humans.
