08 Mar 2018
Doha, Qatar, March 7, 2018: Six inspirational individuals will be sharing their incredible stories of achieving success in women's sport and health in a panel session to mark International Women’s Day on Thursday, March 8.  This will be immediately followed by sporting activities led by Qatar's leading health and lifestyle professionals for female guests of all ages and abilities.

Organised by the Qatar Olympic Committee in collaboration with the Aspire Zone, the event aims to highlight and celebrate the extraordinary women in Qatar who are breaking down barriers and changing perceptions of women in sport.

The event will provide an opportunity to discuss what more can be done to inspire and empower more females to achieve their sporting dreams, whilst encouraging more females to live healthy and active lifestyles through the free sporting activities on offer.

Commenting on the event, Sheikha Asma Al Thani, panelist and Director of Marketing and Communications at the Qatar Olympic Committee, said:  “International Women's Day is a chance to shine a spotlight on the incredible achievements of women in Qatar and around the world so that more women are inspired and empowered to achieve their dreams. 

“The QOC is organising this event not only to celebrate our successful women in sport and health but also to create a conversation about what we can all be doing as a society to further support the participation of more women in sport at any and every level. We invite everyone, men and women, to come down and participate in what we hope will be a fascinating and inspirational session." The event's theme is “Challenging Beyond Expectation”.
