Be The Change Africa Woman in Sport



This event was initiated to encourage every female African journalist in sports and across the globe. African women in sports fraternity must take charge in leadership and in their space of sport. The third edition of this summit took place at the Accra International Conference Center on Wednesday 27th July 2022.

African Women Summit was hosted by the head of sports from Media General (TV3), Juliet Bawuah. She invited a few prominent distinguished guests to grace the event namely the Second Lady of the Republic H. E Hajia Samira Bawumiah, Councilor/ CAF match commissioner Naa Odofoly Nortey, C.E. O of Simba Football Club Barbara Gonzalez from Tanzania, and Super sports female broadcaster Thato Moeng also from South Africa.

According to Juliet Bawuah, this yearโ€™s summit would be an incredible one for every African woman in sports. Women should grab what belongs to them in sports as well. African women in sports shouldnโ€™t limit themselves regardless of the challenges they may encounter or face on their levelling-up journey as journalists. Building a career as an African woman in sporting activities serves as a great opportunity to take charge.

Over the decade, men in sports across the continent have taken the space in sports for women to also execute their talents. Moving on, womenโ€™s reputations are being wiped off because of the negativity that is channelled to them.

The C.E. O of Simba, Barbara Gonzalez, shows that African women in sports must have the zeal, passion, confidence, and fearlessness in their position to reach the best goal in life.

A football fanatic, Prince Charles Hayford made a humbled request to the Second Lady of the Republic H.E Hajia Samira Bawumia, to give an opportunity in a policy perspective with the Ministry of Education, Gender, Youth and Sports and other private stakeholders affiliated with sports to give equal opportunity to women in sports in Ghana and beyond
