Today (March 8) we celebrate International Women’s Day around the world, commemorating the movement for women’s rights.

We have the pleasure of working with many of sport’s leading female voices each year at TheStadiumBusiness Summit, and we are working hard to use our platform to address the gender imbalance.

We spoke to some of stadia’s leading female executives about the issue, and why events such as the Summit can really drive the changes needed.

Although the sports and stadium industry has made huge steps towards a more balanced sector, there is a long way to go.

Here’s what TheStadiumBusiness Summit is doing to help – we invite nominations for female stadium professionals to receive a guest pass to the Summit taking place on 12-13 June at Emirates Old Trafford, Manchester, to represent among the world’s top stadium executives.

Know a female stadium professional? Tell us about them now.
