everywoman in SportS INDUSTRY Awards
The British sport industry is an economic powerhouse, generating an estimated annual revenue of over £28 billion. However, despite a growing workforce of close to 900,000, women remain under-represented in the boardroom. Just 8% of board members at professional English sports clubs are female with over half of all professional sports clubs in England without any female representation on their boards.
It’s for this reason that the everywoman in Sports Industry Awards have been created - to find exceptional female role models working in businesses and organisations that are the backbone of the sports industry. By celebrating their achievements and sharing their career stories, the awards will create a generation of role models to inspire future talent and business success – right from grassroots to the boardroom.

My theory is that we need more women involved in all elements of sport, because if it’s always male dominated, girls will always be left out and considered second.
