Join us for an evening of workshops and networking to celebrate International Women’s Day. Disability Sport Wales are hosting an event with the purpose of supporting female participation in sport.

What will the event cover?

Throughout the event a number of workshops will be delivered focusing on supporting female participation in sport. We aim to deliver these, inclusively (but not disability specific) and to offer a great experience while developing the knowledge of how to support the female participation in physical activity including sport.

The 30-minute workshops will be based on the following:

  • Athlete Journey presented by Paralympic GB's most decorated winter Paralympian - Menna Fitzpatrick
  • Workshop delivered by Lora Roberts MChiro LRCC. Lora is a former Associate Chiropractor at Ridgeway Clinic and current lecturer of chiropractic at the University of South Wales.
  • Inclusive well-being activity
  • Networking opportunity and Refreshments

The Light colour mode is designed using Disability Sport Wales brand colours, to meet Web Content Accessibility Guidance Level AA. This should provide good contrast for most users.

The Dark colour mode also uses Disability Sport Wales brand colours, but inverts light and dark to create a "night mode" version. It is intended for people who dislike bright screens, or wish to use their display in a more energy-efficient way. This option does not meet Web Content Accessibility Guidance Level AA, so may not be suitable for users with visual impairments.

The Calm colour mode uses colours which may be more suitable for users who are sensitive to bright colours, or prefer lower contrast. This option does not meet Web Content Accessibility Guidance Level AA, so may not be suitable for users with visual impairments.

The High Contrast option is tailored to meet Web Content Accessibility Guidance Level AAA, and is intended to make this website as accessible as possible to users with the lowest visual acuity. Ideal use of this setting would be combined with Medium Text or Large Text text sizes.


Our default button style uses block-colour backgrounds that contrast against the page background.

You can optionally change this to use buttons that maintain the same background colour and text colour as the main website content, and signifies that is a button with an outline. This may be preferred by users who can read light-on-dark or dark-on-light with greater comfort.

Please select your preference:

Use of Capital Letters

You can choose to minimise the use of capital letters for headings and sub-headings if you find them easier to read in Sentence Case. Some text, including acronyms, may still be shown in capital letters.
