Live podcast - Beyond 30%
This live podcast looked at the impact the increased numbers of women on sports boards is having, its impact on athletes and those at the grassroots. With an expert panel including: Tammy Beaumont, England cricketer; Halima Khan, Independent Non-Executive Director, Diversity & Inclusion at Triathlon England; Rob Young MBE, CEO of Switch The Play Foundation; Stacey Knight, Commercial Director, CSM Live, we discussed whether the experiences of men and women working in the sector are changing as a result of more women on boards and what that change looks like.
The impact of Covid-19 on teenage girls
We chat to Becca and Britney from Goals4Girls and university student Ellen about what their lives were like during lockdown, the challenges they faced, how they got active and what they're looking forward to when life gets back to "normal".
We chat to Georgie Bruinvels, co-creator of the Fitr Woman app, Mia Slevin, freestyle swimmer and Fitr Woman Ambassador, and Maddy Cope from Lattice Training, about menstruation and exercise.
