Why Gender Stereotypes Should Never be a Barrier to Human Potential
Stacey Copeland has represented her country in two sports - football and boxing. Throughout her long career in sport she has achieved European medals, competed at World Championships, and became the first British woman to win the Commonwealth title. Alongside her sporting achievements, she is passionate about equality and has spoken at the UN, European Parliament and TEDx about gender equality. In this talk Stacey will share her experiences in sport, how this led her to set up Pave The Way, and aims to encourage us all to question, challenge and change inequality.
