SportsPro NEW ERA is a year-round programme designed to recognise, support and advocate for a new era of gender equality and representation within the international sports industry.
We want to bring new ideas, underappreciated thinkers and future leaders to the forefront and elevate their profiles. We will provide a global platform and ongoing community support, powered by a diverse Steering Group of inspirational and accomplished women with unrivalled experience.
Despite progress being made, there is still a small pool of regular female contributors to the global b2b sports industry conversation. We intend to widen and deepen this from within. Twelve successful female applicants will benefit from year-round editorial, event, and networking opportunities, as well as dedicated coaching time with every member of the Steering Group.
SportsPro’s unique network of influence affords us the opportunity and responsibility to help shape the future landscape of the sports industry and empower the women who will steer it.
Meet our Class of 2023 who are positively transforming the future of the sports industry.
As a member of the NEW ERA community, you will have exclusive access to content from the inspiring women inducted into the Class. Steering Group members and other female contributors will also share their expertise and personal experiences within sport.
We are proudly supported by a Steering Group of diverse global senior executives whose backgrounds, job descriptions, experiences, and specialities align with SportsPro’s Women in Sport strategy.
