Women in Sport Conference – Celtic F.C, 25th May 2011

May 5, 2011

SEMSA logoNever more so than before has the need for an integrated approach to service delivery been more pertinent.  SEMSA, in partnership with Glasgow Life will present a thought provoking conference, stimulating debate from those responsible for formulating and implementing policy.

Visible minority ethnic women continue to experience obstacles in their pursuit of a full and active role within sport.  Participation levels remain low often due to a lack of awareness around the practical, social and cultural considerations faced by such women. Further, representation at all levels of the decision making process continue to be negligible.

The conference will provide an opportunity for inspired discussion on methods in which progress can be achieved at both a local and national level by presenting experiences of minority ethnic women and their engagement / experience in sport.

These challenging economic times require diversity to be championed with all sectors working to a shared vision, reflecting the aspirations of all communities.

Workshops will include:

“Women’s Participation” An insight into the barriers and issues preventing minority ethnic women’s participation in sport.

“Don’t tell us – ASK US!!” – Scottish Women’s Active Pathways Project (SWAP) advisory group, methods of approach when engaging minority ethnic women, leading to models of proactive practice.

“Strategic Planning” – An in depth look at strategy and policy and how it reflects implementation.

Who should attend the conference?

National Governing Bodies
Public and Third Sector Organisations
Policy Makers
Service Providers
Aspiring Minority Ethnic Women
