BUCS and EY are launching a network dedicated to championing female athletes, coaches, committee members and volunteers. The network name is inspired by EY’s own research that 94% of C-suite female executives competed in sport.

The network aims to create a thriving group of talented females from universities across the UK, who meet virtually four times a year to discuss key topics across the world of women’s sport and business. Open to females and male allies, the event series will aim to cover a range of topics including the impact sport and physical activity has on developing female leaders, Imposter Syndrome and Confidence Building.  

Members of the network will gain exclusive access to all four events and can contribute to themes and topics discussed at future events. Finally, network members will benefit from EY’s fast track application, accelerating their application should they wish to apply for EY.  

Our first event will take place on Monday 4 October from 5-6pm. Delivered by EY's Head of Athlete Program and Women's Sport Champion Kristy Ingram, this session will take a deep dive into EY's ground-breaking research on the impact sport has on developing skills that help female athletes get ahead of the competition in their careers.  
Kristy will discuss her female specific research including "Why a Female Athlete should be your next leader" and "Five strategies winning female entrepreneurs developed as athletes".



Jenny Morris, Director of Delivery at BUCS commented: "EY research showing that 94% of women in C-suite positions had played regular competitive sport didn’t come as a shock to us – we have long recognised the talents of female BUCS athletes, on and off the pitch. Together with EY, we are so excited to take the next step in developing these female leaders in sport and business, through the creation of the 94 Network. As we head into the much anticipated sport season, we look forward to supporting and championing the next generation of female leaders, and celebrating their impact for years to come.”
