Women across the globe are inspiring other women and young girls across all spheres of society. Day by day, women break down barriers, leading the charge in changing perceptions and taking ownership of their place in society, in business, in politics and in sport.

In celebration of women who are driving change, our theme for Women Leaders in Sport is She Leads. She Conquers, She Inspires.

We acknowledge and honor the achievements of women across all spheres of society. In commemorating this day through conversation championing the right of equal representation, equal opportunity and equal commensuration for women in business, we boldly support the growing global movement of advocacy, activism for women’s rights. Women Leaders in Sport proudly supports the campaign, #PressforProgress.


Taking place in Women’s Month – August 2018 in Cape Town, the Summit, will seek to change the narrative of a traditionally male-dominated industry, engaging role-players, creating an environment where women can thrive, working  at changing perspectives,  opening doors, evolving the industry so that our young women who have the qualities and skills to become effective leaders in the business of sport, are given their seat at the boardroom table.

Speakers  from a wide range of industries, are themselves game changers in their own right. Summit themes and topics will titillate and tantalize, yet temper hardened traditionalist, as we seek to establish a new order in the Business of Sport.

WLIS 2018 Programme and Speakers to be announced soon.
