We are pleased to announce that Sport Wales are the Sport category sponsor at this year’s Womenspire Awards!
We spoke to PR Officer – Rachel Argyle, about the organisation and what it means to them to be part of Womenspire18!
Q1. Tell us about your organisation
Sport Wales is the national organisation responsible for developing and promoting sport and physical activity in Wales. Our Squad is a Sport Wales initiative aimed at inspiring, empowering and encouraging more women and girls in Wales to get active and give sport a go.
Q2. Why are you supporting the awards?
We are passionate about sport in Wales and acknowledging those who play a part in it, aligning with the visions of Chwarae Teg and these awards. We champion role models for women & girl’s sport as well as encourage females to give sport a go to benefit their lives, and events such as these are a wonderful opportunity to recognise the work being carried out across the country.
Q3. Why does gender equality matter to you?
We don’t want gender to be a barrier when it comes to sport participation and through initiatives like Our Squad, we empower women to try new sports and opportunities to broaden their experiences and hopefully – enjoy!
Q4. Why do you support the work of Chwarae Teg?
We support the work of Chwarae Teg in empowering women across Wales and championing role models across various fields to help inspire other women and girls to stand up and be counted.
