SVG Europe Women and Sky Sports announce Elevating Women in Sport in-person event on 5 July
Sky Sports and SVG Europe Women are excited to announce Elevating Women in Sport, an in-person event taking place at Sky Central in West London on the afternoon of Tuesday 5 July 2022.
The event, being held in association with Sky Sports, will feature a keynote on representation on and off the camera. This will be followed by a discussion about how European broadcasters approach their women’s sports rights and how much we really know about female fans and how to engage them, as well as the chance to get hands-on with broadcasting kit and speak to operators.

Doors will open at 3pm with speakers taking the stage at 4pm, beginning with a keynote on representing society on and off the camera. This will be followed by a panel titled Maximising the growth of the women’s game.
Speakers will explore how European broadcasters approach their women’s sports rights, how much is dictated by the men’s game, and how much we really know about female fans and how to engage them.
After a Q&A with the audience we will then move onto an opportunity to get hands on behind the scenes. There are many exciting roles available in sports broadcasting behind the camera, so guests will be invited to network and will also be given the opportunity to get hands-on with broadcasting kit outside in the sun, and talk to trained operators about their roles.
Heather McLean, editor at SVG Europe and head of SVG Europe Women, said: “It is going to be brilliant to be back at Sky Sports again after a long hiatus. This event is covering all aspects of sports broadcasting, from what we are seeing on our screens and how and why it gets there, to the chance to talk to women working behind the camera about what they do and how they do it, and to get your hands on some really cool kit to see what it feels like. It’s going to be fantastically inspirational, and SVG Europe Women is honoured to be able to bring this experience to you with the support of Sky Sports.”
The event will end at 8.30pm.
Speakers will be announced soon!
