November 8 – The Sports Integrity Global Alliance (SIGA) have set 6 March 2024 as the date for the next edition of the Summit on Female Leadership in Sport which will be hosted by Mastercard at the Technology Hub in Ney York for the third year running.
SIGA said the “Summit will bring together female leaders and male allies from all sides of the global sports industry. Designed to unlock the power of networking …(the summit) is focused on learning, connecting, and mobilizing the sports community to commit to gender equity both on and off the field of play.”
The Summit on Female Leadership in Sport is part of the SIGA Women Programme, which includes the Global Mentorship Programme and the Women’s on Wednesdays series.
The Summit will be in a hybrid format, with a digital live-streaming option for those who cannot attend or are too late to secure an in-person pass.
Katie Simmonds, SIGA Global COO and Managing Director of the SIGA Women Programme, commented: “Currently there are less than 30 percent of women represented in the decision-making organs of the international federations. To move the needle, achieve gender equity, and really have good governance in Sport, we need to push for change.
“SIGAWomen does this through: (1) delivering mentorship to aspiring female leaders; (2) holding sports organisations accountable to diversity and inclusion criteria enshrined in the SIGA Universal Standards on Good Governance in Sport via our independent rating and verification tool, SIRVS; and (3) providing a platform for female leaders and male allies to amplify their real-life stories to inspire and instigate systemic cultural change. Join our global movement, register now for the Summit, and play your part in shaping a more equitable future,” she continued.
Registration is now open for all participants, and early bird rates are available for those who book before 15 December 2023. Click here to sign up.
