The Black in Sport Summit was launched in 2022 to celebrate the achievements of black people across the sports industry and to inspire a new generation of sports industry professionals.
With the backing of Sky and Loughborough University, the Black in Sport Summit returns in 2023 at the iconic London Stadium in Stratford – home of West Ham United Football Club and the host venue for the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games.
The movement was also borne out of a desire to change the narrative in sport and to tackle discrimination and underrepresentation of black people in the sector. With the themes for 2023 – “Excellence, Leverage, and Influence”, BISS continues to build a community of current and aspiring professionals in the sector and promotes the idea that a career in sport is available to everyone.
Location: London Stadium Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park London E20 2ST
