FOR TWO ACTION-PACKED DAYS WE WILL CONNECT, ENGAGE, AND INSPIRE CHANGE, TOGETHER.

On October 20, 2020, we will kick off our 11th annual espnW: Women + Sports Summit! While it will be a virtual experience this year, our mission remains: unite a world-class group of leaders in sports and business, female athletes, and industry influencers for two days of conversation, collaboration and inspiration, all focused on creating change and opportunity for women in sports.

Each year, The Summit addresses a wide range of topics, from global access to sports and opportunities for the advancement of women across industries, to the marketing of female athletes and the business of women’s sports.

Join us October 20-21 for this year’s virtual Summit. We promise to make you smile, think, and feel the W love!
