SVG Europe Women Scotland 2024: First speakers revealed for 21 March event at The Poetry Club in Glasgow

Speakers from EMG, IMG and QTV will be taking to the stage of The Poetry Club in Glasgow for the third edition of SVG Europe Women Scotland.

Taking place at 18:00 on Thursday 21 March, SVG Europe Women Scotland – Connecting with the Community will 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 first panel, ‘Nurturing the sports broadcasting ecosystem’, will see speakers including Tom Giles, IMG Studios’ vice president, director of engineering, EMG UK sales director Angela Gibbons, and QTV director of people and purpose Lucy Lake discussing 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.

The host for the evening will once again be broadcast and sports journalist Alison Walker.
