International Women's Day is celebrated in many countries around the world. It is a day when women are recognised for their achievements. It is also a day when the value of women’s sport is highlighted. The Carnegie School of Sport has a distinguished history of putting its underpinning principles of equality and social justice in sport into practice. Our work is multidisciplinary, rigorous and made accessible for a range of audiences.

On International Women’s Day the Carnegie School of Sport are celebrating their longstanding commitment to #BalanceforBetter by hosting a carnegieXchange event that showcases our women’s sport research with Dr Leanne Norman, Dr Stacey Emmonds, Dr Hayley Fitzgerald and Dr Annette Stride, followed by an Alumni Talk by Dr Mel Lang (Edge Hill University) who is making a positive difference to child protection in sport.
