This May we welcome Maureen McGonigle, who founded Scottish Women in Sport in November 2013 to increase the profile and raise awareness of all areas of women in sport in Scotland.

Maureen is also Chair of Scottish Sports Futures, an organisation that empowers young people through the power of sport, and a Director of the School for Social Entrepreneurs. A member of the Scottish Government Women in Sport Advisory Board and Boxing Scotland's Participation and Diversity Group.

Maureen has been involved in sports administration for over 25 years. Executive Administrator of Scottish Women’s Football till December 2013, Maureen was the first female Scottish FA Council Member and Non-Professional Game Board member in football in Scotland. She is the only Scottish FA female life member.

In addition, we are delighted that Maureen will be joined by Hannah Rankin, the first female boxer from Scotland to win a World Title who will reflect on her own experiences.

Join us, as we celebrate the contribution made to sport by women and discuss what steps we can do to empower future generations of young people to continue to excel in sport.
