    This panel will be in Hunua 3 and stream on the virtual platform.

    Women’s sport is enjoying its moment – it is experiencing increased airtime and exposure as well as filling the airwaves. However, there is still a lot of work to do – even just from an equity standpoint.

    Do we make it hard for fans of women’s sport to become true fans? How are the decisions being made, and who are the organizations or, more specifically, the people making these decisions? And how do these decisions impact revenue opportunities? Panellists will tackle these questions and how the sport ecosystem can overcome the inequities women's sport faces in media.
