Everything in Sport, Women Edition is coming to London

Everything in Sport are hosting the Women Edition on the 3rd and 4th December at the London Stadium, the latest of their many events run globally throughout the year. Going forward, fans and industry experts will have the standard sport conference in July to enjoy in London, as well as an Athletics conference in Tokyo and an ‘Everything in Soccer’ in Toronto in October 2020 as well.

First up though, the Women Edition gives us the opportunity to discuss the growth of women’s sport with true industry experts and people who day-to-day fight to ensure women’s sport gets the recognition and funding it deserves.

Keynotes at the event will be delivered by many big names including Debbie Jevans CBE (Executive Chair of the English Football League), Kathryn Anastasi (Head of Live Sport at talkSPORT) & Kelly Simmons (Director of Women’s Professional game at the FA).

Jack Sullivan, Managing Director of West Ham United Women FC will discuss capitalising on the hype surrounding the women’s game in football, before Emma Butterworth leads a discussion on whether we need positive discrimination.

Daniella Sharkey will also moderate on Human Rights in Sport with Jon Dutton, tournament CEO of the Rugby League World Cup 2021, also on the panel.

These are just a few headlines for what’s a jam-packed schedule that Everything in Sport are so excited to bring. Ahead of the event, here’s what they had to say: Our vision is a world where women and men have equal opportunities… The message is clear: Gender discrimination has no place!

“Everything in Sport – Women Edition want the number of women leading and influencing in sport to grow, and to develop solutions to the cultural barriers which currently exist globally.  Sport is one of the most powerful platforms for promoting gender equality and empowering women and girls.

“The EIS team has an important responsibility to take action when it comes to gender equality – a basic human right of profound importance.  Great progress has been made in promoting gender equality in terms of balancing the total number of sporting athletes participating in sport, offering leadership development, advocacy and awareness campaigns, and more recently appointing more women to leadership roles within the administration and governance.  Many stakeholders have also implemented significant gender equality initiatives so that girls and women around the world are being given greater access and the opportunity to participate in sport. However, there are still many challenges to be addressed.”
