Women in Sport, the UK’s leading women’s sport charity will relaunch the Women’s Sport Network at an event being held on: Tuesday 17th February 2015, 3pm-6pm at University Women's Club, 2 Audley Square, London, W1K 1DB.
The Women’s Sport Network has been running for over a year, and brings together leading female sports figures such as Baroness (Tanni) Grey-Thompson, Debbie Jevans, and Alison Kervin to share their experiences of working in sport and to inspire more women to pursue careers in the sport industry. It also provides members with opportunities to meet and discuss key issues affecting women in sport and from 2015 will provide a platform for mentoring and professional development for women working throughout sport.
Ruth Holdaway, Chief Executive of Women in Sport, said: “It is an exciting time as we relaunch the Women’s Sport Network with more on offer than ever before. We are thrilled to have Women Ahead on board for 2015/16, as they deliver a new mentoring programme for our members.
“Being a member of the Network is a real opportunity for all those with an interest in women in sport to come together to share and learn from others’ experiences, and to hear from some truly inspirational women.
“It’s also an opportunity for people to support our ongoing work here at the charity, and to be part of transforming sport for the benefit of every woman and girl in the UK.”
