INNOV8-ing Around the World
The programme content for the 8th IWG World Conference on Women & Sport is being co-designed by a range of extraordinary global sport and physical activity contributors with diverse skill sets and experiences. They have been collectively grouped into five global INNOV8 Programming Teams.
There are over 150+ members included from 28 different countries and all continents. Each member is highly committed to working together, collaborating online and over long distances to design content that enables positive change for women and girls worldwide and ensures a range of global and local ideas are included in the conference programme.
The INNOV8 Programming Teams core task has been identifying the most pressing global issues that impact gender equality in sport and physical activity globally. This has now formed the basis of the content framework. They are all volunteers committed to the overall theme of the conference, ‘Change Inspires Change‘.
