Sport and Refugee Women: The INSPIRES European Seminar31 August 2021

Join experts from across the refugee and sport fields on Monday 6th September to discuss the inclusion of refugee women in and through sport. 

Speakers at the seminar include Khalida Popal, the former captain of the Afghanistan women’s national team, who has fought tirelessly in recent weeks to evacuate over 100 athletes from her home country as the Taliban regained power.

The online event will give the opportunity to learn from leading experts, including Khalida, sports broadcaster and journalist Ben Jacobs, and Discover Football coach and activist Johanna Small, and to network and share experience with other national and international refugee and sport organisations.

The online Seminar, part of the EU-funded INSPIRES project, is open to NGOs and coaches working or interested in working with refugees/ refugee women.
