Maria Bobenrieth: The impact of sport for young women
Show Notes

In this moving and thought-provoking episode of The Game Changers, I talk to Maria Bobenreith, Executive Director of Women Win, to explore how sport is being used to enable young women to exercise their rights across the world. 

We consider how sport enables girls to develop their innate leadership, the power of joy to transform even the toughest lives and how nationalism trumps sexism when it comes to success on the world stage. 

Maria describes powerful examples of how sport is driving social change across the world, and openly shares her learnings from her previous role as a former Global Director of Community Investments at Nike.
