How do we sustain the growth of women’s high performance sport?

Off the back of our event hosted in Manchester, Leaders Meet: Driving Step-Change in Female High Performance, we’ll continue the conversation and discuss some of latest thinking and experiences that female leaders, and allies to female leaders, across elite sport can do as a collective high performance community to make the biggest impact across the industry.  

Joining us will be Polly Bancroft, Head of Women’s Football at Manchester United FC, and Nicky Ponsford, Head of Women’s High Performance, World Rugby.
