In this week's bulletin: we share more details on our exciting plans for 2020, highlight inspirational stories from the sports world, and share great resources!
Plus, we wrap up #GenderEquality month with a look at COVID-19 through a gender lens.
Starting April 9 at 9am EDT, we will host monthly 'Beyond Sport Community Chats' to provide a space for our global network to share the challenges and the issues they are facing, as well as ideas to stimulate new thinking and solutions. We will be inviting funders, brands, NGOs, thought leaders, leagues, educational organizations and more to share, listen and learn as we navigate this time together.
In order for us to ensure we’re focusing on the right areas, we are looking for your input! Please take this short 6 question survey [Link in bio] to let us know the best way we can support the Beyond Sport community. Thank you. #SameTeam

Our #WCW goes out to @womeninsoccerus, a groundbreaking member network that's coming soon which we are supporting through our sister agency #thinkBeyond. In this time of isolation, it's even more important to support our communities and help each other where we can.
Last week, we were excited to join the women behind it - including Founder, Courtney Levinsohn - to share ideas on the vision of a 'future where our individual and collective soccer networks will continue to flourish and enrich us no matter where we are in life — or where life takes us'. The #Inclusive #Interactive #Impactful network (US based) will champion and provide personal and professional guidance for women across the ENTIRE soccer industry, increase #genderequity overall, support soccer for #socialimpact orgs and, of course, celebrate sport in this time of uncertainty. ⚽ ✨ 💪🏼 Stay tuned for updates! #letsdothis #SDG5 #GlobalGoals #WomenInSoccer #beyondsoccer
