SVG Europe Women Scotland 2024: New speakers announced for Connecting with the Community on 21 March

Taking place at 18:00 on Thursday 21 March, Connecting with the Community will see speakers from IMG, EMG, QTV, plus Black & Scot and more look into how the entire sports broadcasting community could work better together, viewing the industry as an ecology that needs nurturing as well as requiring companies to push harder to foster diversity and equality in this region.

The host for the evening will once again be broadcast and sports journalist Alison Walker. Sessions will kick off with ‘Nurturing the sports broadcasting ecosystem’, during which Tom Giles, IMG Studios’ vice president, director of engineering, EMG UK sales director Angela Gibbons, and new speakers Heather Andrews, freelance sound designer and engineer, and QTV chief technology officer Gareth Gordon will discuss how OB firms, broadcasters and production companies from Scotland and England need to encourage, support, mentor and utilise newer people post-learning who are moving into the Scottish freelance community, ultimately for the growth of the region’s ecosystem.

This will be followed by a session titled, ‘Mind the gap: Fostering diversity and equality’, with Timi Adegunwa, founder and chair of Black & Scot, a dynamic organisation committed to elevating black excellence in Scotland and beyond, and EMG’s group environmental, social and governance director Rohan Mitchell. They will take an in-depth look at how an inclusive and equitable workforce makes business sense, and how it can be achieved for the Scottish sports broadcasting industry.

Time is ticking to register for this exciting event that will provide insight and a call to action for the Scottish and English sports broadcasting community. Register here!
