Women in Sport and Exercise Academic Network

16th June 2020

The Women in Sport and Exercise Academic Network (WiSEAN) conference 2020 is a global virtual event, to discuss the impact of situations like COVID-19 on the exercising female. The event will help to grow, strengthen and promote research on women in sport and exercise, especially at times like this, when restrictions impose changes to how we work, exercise, and to how we view and compete in sport.

Women tend to be overlooked when it comes to research within sport and exercise. WiSEAN, therefore, wish to virtually connect individuals from a range of disciplines to ensure that sport and exercise research has a focus on women, especially during COVID-19 and beyond. WiSEAN want women to 'get back on their feet' to ensure that existing gender inequalities within sport and exercise fail to be heightened by the COVID-19 pandemic. With a variety of keynote speakers and themed workshops, the aim is to increase awareness about how to optimise women’s athletic success and their participation.

This online conference has been produced so you are able to attend from the comfort of your own home. This conference will be a platform of networking opportunities to connect with others in sport and exercise to boost confidence, training and motivation through knowledge gained via others’ research and experience.
