Can Tech be the Catalyst for Growth in Women’s Sport?

Hosted by Digital Sport North

The team at Digital Sport North are thrilled to announce their latest event: an engaging panel discussion set to delve into the current state of the sports industry for women, and the ways in which tech and digital may offer further growth and opportunity for all.

In recent years we’ve witnessed a progressive growth in the professionalising of women’s sport and surge in interest in women’s sports media rights and coverage, as exemplified by the FIFA Women’s World Cup 2023.

But there’s still a long way to go yet and the whole sports industry has progress to make. Could digital and tech provide the opportunities for even more rapid growth in scale, audiences and opportunities for women to compete on a level playing field to forge careers in and around the sports industry?

Digital Sport North are bringing together an expert panel of people right at the top of their game to engage in a thought-provoking discussion on this very subject. It will feature an exceptional line-up of female industry leaders, who will shed light on where we stand now, share their experiences and perspectives, overcoming the challenges and provide some ideas for where the growth will be harnessed – particularly in terms of tech and digital.

We’re delighted to welcome back the brilliant Tanya Arnold who proved such a popular panellist at our April event, this time as our perfect host for the evening. With an illustrious career as a true trailblazing female sports journalist and presenter, working for BBC for more than two decades, Tanya has been an incredible advocate for both sport and sportswomen in the North.

This time we’ll be heading to Leeds venue, The Wardrobe, for a great evening of interesting conversations, brilliant insights, and relaxed networking with like-minded people in and around sports and tech. Attendees will have the unique opportunity to connect with sports industry leaders, experts, coaches, athletes, and tech professionals – all in a relaxed environment over a drink or two.

This event will leave you with a deeper understanding of how we can drive positive change and further empower women in sport across the North and is a must-attend for anyone working or interested in sports and technology. See you there!
