BACoS – Women in Sports: Empowering Women Through Sport | 03/11/2019

Research shows that sports can benefit girls and women by enhancing their health and well-being, fostering self-esteem and empowerment, facilitating social inclusion and integration, challenging gender norms and providing opportunities for leadership.

Join this new Women Series, organized by BACoS and many other Atlantan Chambers of Commerce, on Monday, March 11 to learn from Lucy Rushton (Atlanta United Football Club) and Trina Bolton (US Department, Sport Diplomacy) how sports can help women to achieve goals and break barriers!
