The #BeAGameChanger Awards demonstrate the power of women’s sport to accelerate gender equality both in, and beyond, sport. Now in their third year, the Awards highlight the stories and examples of sporting role models, leaders, journalists, broadcasters and businesses that drive real change for women’s sport. Together they make a powerful case for the sustained investment and coverage needed to achieve gender parity.
The Women’s Sport Trust #BeAGameChanger Awards will take place in London on May 11th 2017 before an audience including elite athletes, journalists, businesspeople, politicians, sports leaders, grassroots influencers and young people involved in sport.
Previous winners of prestigious #BeAGameChanger’s Awards have included the likes of Nicola Adams MBE, Baroness Tanni Grey-Thompson and Clare Balding, along with organisations such as BBC Sport, parkrun UK and British Rowing and individuals and groups making an impact in the community.
This year’s awards, sponsored by software giant Microsoft, promise to be even bigger and better.
