Empowering Stories from Courageous Women

Blake Richardson hears from several female role models, who explain how having the courage and confidence to step out of their comfort zone has helped them create their own opportunities for success. Their advice to women at a crossroads in their lives or their careers is to ‘just go for it’

For generations of ambitious career women shackled by cultural constraints, the invisible barrier to success – the so-called glass ceiling – was certainly no myth. 

While discrimination does undoubtedly still exist in some workplaces – and that includes some boardrooms within the sport sector, where unconscious bias can influence decision-making – the future looks brighter than it ever has.

This is thanks to women like Vivienne Aiyela, Jo Moseley, Stacey Copeland, Tina Bowden, and the rest of the presenters and award nominees who attended the sixth Women in Sport North Conference held in Huddersfield. 

We heard from women, and men, who are at the forefront of the drive to make sport more female-friendly.

This is their story of how, through the application of courage and confidence, they are tearing down society’s remaining glass ceilings and helping to create a land of opportunity for everyone, irrespective of their gender, race, sexual orientation, disability or age.

The insight and knowledge that lived experience has brought them will resonate with coaches, and their valuable advice will help both new and more experienced female coaches as they plot their own career prospects and self-development journeys.
