Registration has officially opened for the 2019 Africa Women’s Sports Summit.
Interested persons can register for free via the event’s website www.awsportsummit.com where they will provide a few details.
The applications will undergo a selection process, after which an eventual sixty will make it to the event on May 15 at the Swiss Spirit Alisa Hotel in Accra, Ghana.
The summit, which is a brainchild of International Sports Journalist Juliet Bawuah, will bring together over sixty participants for a day’s session with some of Africa’s leading and respected women Sports Journalists as well as notable names in media, corporate and sports landscape who have shattered the glass-ceiling in the areas they operate.
The event will be held under the theme: “Take Your Place”, which will highlight and trigger conversations about empowering young female sport Journalists and upcoming talents to lead and impact their communities.
The maiden edition will focus on Sports Journalism and the window of opportunities available to women. It is open to aspiring and established women sports Journalists, who will learn from and interact with speakers from across Africa.
The Pan-African event will take stock of the gains made so far by African women in sports, and offer a clear path to fill the gaps while taking leadership roles for the future.
The 2019 #AWSportsSummit is supported by Swiss Spirit Alisa Hotel, Dr. Bates Solutions and Stimuluz.
The event seeks to present a platform for mentorship, and greater female inclusion in the African sports ecosystem while working towards creating conditions that go a long way to help the African woman in sports attain career goals.
