Women supporting women is a huge area, there’s not a lot of us (women) working in men’s sport, so if we are able to create those networks where it’s just peer support. It doesn’t have to be anything formal but being able to check in and support each other is really important. I think women, in particular, are filled with self-doubt and this sense of imposter syndrome way more than men, so having other women say ‘no you can do this’ is a really powerful thing.
