“As chairperson of the NACAC Gender Leadership Working Group and chairperson of the Women In Sport for the Bermuda Olympic Association, this has become a passion of mine motivating, mentoring and developing female leaders in our sport.

“This will be exciting joining other females around the world discussing various global issues women are dealing with in sport and the successes.

“Some of the topics that we will discuss include:

  • “Where do women see themselves in 5 years?
  • “What obstacles do women need to overcome to achieve their goals?
  • “Who can help you on your leadership journey?

“There will be inspirational stories from several keynote speakers, from former top athletes whose impact has extended well beyond the world of sport, to powerful governance leaders in athletics.

“There will be breakout sessions to join with others to discuss their own personal journeys in virtual breakout groups of 15 to 20 people, followed by panel discussions around what has been achieved through the Gender Leadership training.”
