International Women’s Day 2023: WOMXNWHOPLAY 9 Months Later

All

7 Mar 23

Last year we launched #WOMXNWHOPLAY in the run up to the Women’s Euros, an inspirational campaign in collaboration with 12 female trailblazers in the sports world, aiming to drive a pivotal narrative around female participation and equality in sports.

Throughout the campaign, we sought to highlight the individual achievements of our 12 ambassadors, whilst inspiring the younger generation of female athletes and sports enthusiasts to get active. The campaign was a huge success with prolific media coverage in major publications including Forbes, Sky Sports, BBC London, Versus and more. 

And we have loved following the journey of all 12 of our all-womxn sports teams ever since…

Following the campaign, two of our ambassadors went on to receive fantastic accolades and two others went on to compete in the Summer Commonwealth Games (Celia Quansah and Jodie Williams). Alice Dearing (Olympic Swimmer) was shortlisted for The Sunday Times Sportswoman of the Year Awards 2022 for the Changemaker Award. This award celebrates those who have inspired others and used their platforms to create change. Leigh Nicol, CPFC Footballer was shortlisted for the ‘Women of the Future Awards’ which celebrates the new generation of trailblazers in Britain.

To celebrate International Women’s Day 2023, we decided to catch up with our amazing ambassadors to get an update on where they are nine months later and how their careers have progressed since then. Keep reading for a few exclusives!
