The triumph of the England Lionesses at Euro 2022, the Women’s Cricket Team’s success at the World Cup in 2017 and, more recently, the controversies sparked by Spain’s football World Cup success this summer, have ignited global conversations around gender equality and representation in sport. From football to cricket to Formula 1, the need for greater visibility, representation and fairness within sport, and an emphasis on how it can contribute to wellbeing, has never been more vital.  

Join the Global Institute for Women’s Leadership and researchers from the Experimental Government Team at the Policy Institute, King’s College London, as we bring together experts from the sports industry to discuss sports participation, representation, and the impact this has on well-being, underpinned by new research findings.
