The Power of Sports to Empower Girls and Women
On 27 April, we hosted a highly enlightening and dynamic panel conversation around the power of sport to empower girls and women. The importance of sport for our physical and mental well-being is universally acknowledged, but furthermore, in this conversation, we learned how providing opportunities to girls in vulnerable communities access to skateboarding, boxing or football can transform their lives and the community around them.
We had an amazing exchange of knowledge and experiences from our highly passionate and committed panellists:
- Franz Gastler – Executive Director & Co-Founder of Yuwa-India
- Ollie Percovich – Founder & Executive Director of Skateistan
- Taban Shoresh – Founder at The Lotus Flower
all elegantly and insightfully moderated by UNICEF’s Associate Director for Gender Equality, Lauren Rumble.
We hope you will enjoy the recording of this conversation.
