- Inner Warrior campaign wins award
- Recognised as 'Inspiring Initiative - National'
England Rugby’s Inner Warrior Campaign won ‘Inspiring Initiative – National’ at the Women’s Sport Trust #BeAGameChanger Awards 2018 this week.
The award ceremony, hosted at the Troxy on Thursday 24 May, celebrated the visionaries and game changers driving the future of women’s sport.
The Inspiring Initiative recognises projects that have had a significant impact on progressing women’s sport at both a national and a local level, and the Inner Warrior campaign – which is focused on encouraging more women and girls to take up rugby across the country – was judged most influential.
“Why is the Women’s Sport Trust so committed to running the #BeAGameChanger Awards? Because compelling stories about the trailblazers need to be told,” explained Jo Bostock, co-founder and joint CEO of the Women’s Sport Trust.
“They set the pace and show what’s possible. Most importantly they stimulate other brands, sport and the media to step up and take action. Building this momentum will ensure the future of women’s sport.”
Elsewhere, an award for Outstanding Contribution to Women’s Sport, chosen by Women’s Sport Trust, was presented to former England captain and founding member of the Rugby Football Union for Women, Carol Isherwood.
