EmpowerHER at Loughborough

4th - 8th March 2024

EmpowerHER at Loughborough, held in line with International Women's Day, aims to provide opportunities for female and non-binary students and staff to conquer barriers to physical activity in environments where they can feel comfortable and supported.

We recognise that many girls and women face societal pressures, self-doubt, or perceived barriers when it comes to exercise. We aim to create inclusive and supportive environments where everyone feels valued and respected on their journey to active well-being.

From beginner self-defence classes to coffee and cake catch-ups, let's come together to shift perceptions and empower women to embrace physical activity confidently and enthusiastically!
