Live podcast – Life after lockdown: Getting women active post-Covid

A special live edition of the Women in Sport Podcast sponsored by CSM Live

In a special live podcast, we’ll discuss the impact of lockdown on women across the UK and how organisations in and outside of sport can ensure that women lead active lifestyles after lockdown.

Research has shown that women have been disproportionately impacted by the Coronavirus lockdown, especially women with children who are juggling home-life, work, and schooling, and women aged 70 plus who have suffered the greatest isolation.

But our latest research has also shown that lockdown has resulted in a resetting of priorities and an increased motivation to exercise, with 61% of women surveyed stating that they will put more effort into being fit and active after lockdown is over.

We’ll discuss the implications of lockdown, the challenges women faced but also the ways they were able to get active and how that can be sustained.

Our podcast panel:

  • Jodie Cunningham, England and St Helens rugby league player and ambassador for the Rugby League World Cup 2021.
  • Ama Agbeze MBE, former captain of the England netball team and Commonwealth gold medallist.
  • Steph Harland, Chief Executive of Age UK
  • Kate Nicholson, Head of Insight and Innovation at Women in Sport.
