Chief Executive Officer
1.5 million more men play sport than women every week and only 8% of girls are reaching recommended exercise guidelines. Women in Sport exists so that every woman and girl in the UK can experience the transformational lifelong rewards of sport, from the field of play to the boardroom, from early years and throughout her life. Our vision is a fairer and stronger society with equal opportunities for women and men.
We research, campaign and advise to drive changes in policy, practice and attitudes that lead to greater opportunities for women and girls in sport. We are the only organisation in the UK that researches sport purely from the perspective of women and girls and all our work includes women and girls in socially deprived communities, where sport can have a uniquely empowering effect.
