Myths and Misconceptions of Female Sport
This topic will unravel the truths and myths of what women and girls want and need from their sport. Our panel members will talk about their journeys to where they are now, as well as how we can actively support our community members to break down barriers to participation, build confidence in our women and girls, and better promote true equality in sport.
