Lisa O'Keefe: Uniting women’s sport across the world (Podcast)

My guest today is Lisa O'Keefe, a former Scottish international rugby player who was a director at Sport England for 14 years and is now Secretary General of the International Working Group on Women and Sport, (https://iwgwomenandsport.org/) the world's largest network dedicated to gender equality in sport and physical activity. Lisa is responsible for leading the Secretariat while it's hosted in the UK until 2026. A passionate advocate for women's sport and breaking down barriers to participation, Lisa led groundbreaking insight work at Sport England, which paved the way for much innovation, including the globally recognised This Girl Can campaign. Thank you to Sport England who support The Game Changers Podcast with a National Lottery award.
