INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE OF SPORTS FOR WOMEN 2017 – INSPIRING GENERATIONS
Welcome to the 4th International Conference of Sports for Women (ICSW), an initiative of the Fatima bint Mubarak Ladies Sport Academy (FBMA).
ICSW 2017 promises to be a milestone event that promotes and supports FBMA’s vision for sports and culture to become a part of the lives of every Emirati woman, and helps inspire and connect women of all backgrounds to further break down barriers.
This year ICSW will be focussing attention on a variety of important topics around the central conference theme - Inspiring Generations. Topics which represent critical barriers to participation in sports for women, and will provide thought-leadership on key issues around women in sports.
ICSW offers transparent, honest and clear debate, a platform to both challenge and empower a variety of points of view, whilst debunking stereotypes and promoting forward thinking.
We are respectful of all views, opinions and backgrounds, and seek to represent women in the UAE and around the world.
We look forward to welcoming you to what we hope will be a truly inspiring event at the Abu Dhabi National Exhibition Centre (ADNEC) on 6 and 7 November 2017.
