Conference 2015

Scottish Women in Sport and SSE presented our second annual conference at RBS Gogarburn on A Culture Change for Scottish Women in Sport.

With a line up of inspirational speakers from across the industry we explored what cultural changes are afoot in sport to encourage more girls and women to take part in all roles, at all levels.

We also discussed the big question – would introducing quotes to NGB boards benefit women and sport?

Among the speakers and panelists were:
Mr Jamie Hepburn, Minister for Sport, Health Improvement and Mental Health
Shelley Alexander, Editorial Lead for Women's Sport, BBC
Jaz Sandhu, Glasgow Life
Rosie Macrae, SSE, Head of Diversity
John Stewart, Iwan Tukalo, Kylie Walker, Robyn Love and Westdyke Football Club
Lesley Thomson, Solicitor General – Director SRU
Justine Mitchell, Director Dundee Utd FC
David Sole, O.B.E., Former Scotland and Lions Test prop
